Research Interests

Professor Vernon works on contemporary political theory, especially issues of global and historical justice, and selected issues (such as toleration and citizenship) in the history of political thought.

Current Research Projects

My current work concerns the global and temporal contexts of justice.  In the global context, I am particularly concerned with the relationship between  civic and cosmopolitan obligations.  In the temporal context, I continue to work on issues of historical redress, and am now exploring the idea of duties in relation to future generations.
