Social Criticism and Political Thought Series

 

Abstract: Victims of oppression can be said to be subject to two types of duties to resist their oppression: self-regarding duties, typically grounded in victims' self-respect, and other-regarding duties, grounded in victims' duties of justice or duties of assistance to other victims. I focus on victims' other-regarding duties and argue that victims play an essential role in collective efforts to resist oppression and create just institutions. I consider how these other-regarding duties can be in tension with victims' self-regarding duties, and how they inform victims' political obligations.
