Alexandre Gajevic Sayegh
Welcome to my page. I am Postdoctoral Fellow at the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and a Lecturer at the Department of Political Sciences at Yale University. I am currently lecturing on The Ethics of Climate Change. I am also affiliated at the Governance, Environment and Climate Initiative at Yale. I am particularly interested in climate justice and its relation to climate policy. My current research focuses on climate justice and development, as well as on the ethics of carbon pricing. I have obtained my Ph.D. in Philosophy at University College London in 2016. My thesis focused on different aspects of the dynamics between ideal and non-ideal theory in politics. The empirical dimension of my thesis targeted two case studies: illicit financial flows and climate change. I also have an ongoing book project titled Justice in a Non-Ideal World. My recent and current research was supported by the FRQSC, UCL, Yale University and the SSHRCC.
I will be hosting a seminar series at Yale on important topics that connect political theory and ongoing sociopolitical issues. Guest speakers for the Spring 2017 include among others Jeffrey Sachs, Amy Goodman, Branko Milanovic and Sanjay Reddy.
