Åsbjørn Melkevik received his PhD from Queen’s University at Kingston in 2017. His research focuses on social justice within market capitalist societies, arguing that if a necessary link exists between classical liberalism and the moral and institutional dimensions of the rule of law, then classical liberalism is bound to adopt a substantial egalitarian program. He has published his research in journals such as Business Ethics Quarterly, Constitutional Political Economy, and the European Journal of Political Theory. During his fellowship year, Åsbjørn will examine the possibility of ameliorating the ethical character of market capitalism following the early Chicago school of economics.
