ROWAN MELLOR

I am a fourth-year Philosophy PhD student at University College London.

 

My doctoral research focusses on 'structural injustice': unjust social conditions which are reproduced by the uncoordinated actions of many ordinary individuals.

 

 

My thesis argues that much of the behaviour which helps to perpetuate structural injustice is morally acceptable; people often have good justifications or excuses for doing things which reproduce injustice. Nevertheless, justice requires that we have legal regulations on certain forms of injustice-perpetuating behaviour: even if, but for those laws, such behaviour would be morally permissible.
