Research

Research Interests

My research interests lie mainly in normative political theory, especially civic republican political thought and its application to issues of citizenship, immigration and diversity; justice and moral obligations, ethics and public affairs.
 
Research projects

Citizenship, immigration and diversity: 
My research here is concerned with examining the norms that should be applied to the acquisition and loss of citizenship, and how the actual practice of contemporary states compares with these norms.
 
Since 2008 I have been a partner in EUDO-Citizenship, which carries on collaborative research on access to citizenship in Europe, led from the European University Institute, with Maastricht and Edinburgh Universities. Extensive materials, including a database of citizenship laws, comparative analyses and policy briefs, are available at http://eudo-citizenship.eu/.  
 
EUCITAC (2008-10) initially created the web-based EUDO-Citizenship observatory of European citizenship legislation and policies. co-ordinated by the European University Institute and Edinburgh, with UCD, Maastricht and the Central European University, Budapest.  ACIT, Access to Citizenship in Europe and its Impact on Integration (2011-13) where the European University Institute, Edinburgh, Maastricht. and UCD were joined by the Migration Policy Group to create indicators on citizenship laws, their implementation and their impact on integration. In SPIRe, Dr. Derek Hutcheson was co-investigator and Kristen Jeffers was research assistant on the ACIT project.  Since 2015 the database includes the countries of North and South America, and an extension of the citizenship law database globally is currently under way. 

From 2010 to 2013 I was a partner in the EU FP 7 funded project ACCEPT: Tolerance and Pluralism in Europe in the 21st Century (2010-2013) http://www.accept-pluralism.eu/ with Dr. Nathalie Rougier, also of SPIRe.  A related jointly edited volume, Tolerance and Diversity in Ireland, North and South was published by Manchester University Press in 2015.

Details of, and papers from, a previously co-ordinated project, the NORFACE seminar series, The Challenges of Immigration for the Smaller Countries of Europe (2006-8) are available at www.ucd.ie/norface/

Justice and moral obligations:
My research in this area of basic normative research focuses on the status of relationships with respect to moral responsibilities.  What is the nature and scope of the moral responsibilities that arise in relationships (including those of family and citizenship), and how are these to be balanced against more universal obligations?  What is the nature, extent and significance of collective responsibilities, and how can we provide for their acknowledgement and discharge?  
 
In 2007-8 I held an IRCHSS Senior Research Fellowship on Justice in Relationships: Interdependence and Obligations. In the context of on ongoing interdisciplinary research group on collective responsibility in UCD, I have organised two events on collective responsibility: a 2014 workshop Collective Responsibility (jointly with Professor Maria Baghramian of UCD Philosophy), and a 2015 conference, Collective Responsibility for the Future, jointly organised with the Jean Beer Blumenthal Center for Ethics, Georgia State University (and with Dr Alexa Zellentin of SPIRe).
