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 Science at Yale University. I am currently lecturing on ‘The Ethics of Climate Change’ and on ‘Markets and Morals’. I also collaborate with the Governance, Environment and Markets Initiative (GEM) at Yale. I am particularly interested in climate ethics and its relation to climate policy. My current research focusses on climate justice and development, collective action, markets, as well as on the ethics of carbon pricing. I have obtained my Ph.D. in Philosophy at University College London in 2016. I have an ongoing book project – titled Justice in a Non-Ideal World (London: Rowman and Littlefield International, forthcoming in 2018). The book casts light on the concepts that occupy the space between political morality and real-world politics. My articles have appeared in Ethics, Policy & Environment (Forthcoming), the Journal of Global Ethics, Moral Philosophy and Politics, and the Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy. My recent research was supported by the FRQSC, UCL, Yale University and the SSHRC.
