Jamie Draper

Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics

I joined Nuffield College as a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics in October 2020. Previously, I was a Teaching Fellow in Political Theory at the University of Warwick. Before that, I was a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholar in Climate Justice at the University of Reading, where I completed my PhD. In 2018, I was a visiting researcher at the Normative Orders Cluster of Excellence at Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main.

My research is in normative political theory, and I work mainly on migration, climate change, and the intersection between the two. I'm currently working on a monograph that sets out a political theory of climate displacement. More broadly, my research interests are in theories of territorial rights, methodology in normative political theory, and housing and gentrification in political theory.
