    Location Robertson Hall, Room 429

    Minh Ly’s research in political theory focuses on questions of democratic theory, global justice, ethics and public policy, and the justice of international finance. He is currently working on a book manuscript, Global Deliberation: A Human Right to Deliberative Democracy, that examines how states and international organizations can be held democratically accountable for respecting human rights. It argues for a participatory theory of accountability, called deliberative justification, that would more strongly protect human rights than accountability through states, while being more feasible than global democracy. He has published in the Review of International Political Economy (2012) and the Routledge Handbook of Global Economic Governance (2013). Ly holds a Ph.D in political science from Brown University and an A.B. in social studies from Harvard University. He is also affiliated with the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance.
