a fuerte bulnes 2I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN), Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo. My current research is focused mainly on two areas. On the one hand, I have recently finished a monograph based on the topic of my Ph.D. dissertation, entitled The Right of Necessity: Moral Cosmopolitanism and Global Poverty, Rowman & Littlefield International. (A blog post about the book can be found here). There, in brief, I present the right of necessity as a concrete expression of the basic right to subsistence. I study this concept in the thought of early modern natural law theorists, specifically Hugo Grotius and Samuel Pufendorf, and then go on to ask whether this right has a place in the contemporary discourse of global poverty and moral cosmopolitanism. Assuming it does, I then ask what the practical implications are of accepting its exercise. On the other hand, my post-doctoral research project concerns the normative justifications offered for territorial and resource rights in political philosophy, contemporary and past. Currently, I am hosted by the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH), Punta Arenas, where I am investigating these questions having Antarctica as a specific case study.
