Nuffield College, University of Oxford


David Miller is professor of political theory at the University of Oxford and an Official Fellow of Nuffield College. Educated at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, where he took his D.Phil., he taught at the Universities of Lancaster and East Anglia before taking up his present post in 1979. He was elected to a Fellowship of the British Academy in 2002.

He continues to work on questions that arise from his most recent books, On Nationality (1995), Principles of Social Justice (1999), and National Responsibility and Global Justice (2007), in particular the relationship between social justice and global justice, and the question of how the boundaries of distributive justice are set.

Future projects include the scope of democracy, problems of social justice in multicultural societies, and further critical engagement with cosmopolitan conceptions of global justice and governance.
