Temi Ogunye

Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics

My research aims to deploy the tools of social and political philosophy, combined with insights from history and the human sciences, to illuminate and address pressing social problems.

Currently, the central question motivating my research is: insofar as we agree that society is unjust, by what means should social justice be advanced and injustice remedied? I label any attempt to advance social justice and remedy injustice social justice activism. Much of my current research explores how to practise social justice activism which targets law on the one hand, and social norms on the other.

Prior to Oxford, I completed a PhD in Political Theory at the London School of Economics and Political Science, an MA in Legal and Political Theory at University College London, and a BA in Philosophy and Politics at the University of Manchester. I have also spent a few years working in politics, policy, and NGOs.
