"Voting as an Epistemic Duty of Justice." (under review)

This article argues for a duty to vote that is not based on classical, republican arguments for democracy. Instead, it looks at instrumentally beneficial epistemic advantages of majority decision-making under circumstances of liberal tolerance.


“On The Tension Between Gendered Choices and Sex Equality: What Can Liberalism Say?” (under review)

This article examines the dilemma posed by women's voluntary preferences that detract from sex equality; and explores the accusation that liberalism's emphasis on freedom of choice condones gender disparities. Social policy pro gender equality is analyzed.
