Chiara Cordelli is an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of Political Science and at the College. She earned a PhD in political theory from the University College London in 2011, and was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University from 2011 to 2013. Her main areas of research are political and moral philosophy, with a particular focus on theories of justice, egalitarianism, normative defenses of the state, the public/private distinction, and the ethics of philanthropy and assistance. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Journal of Political Philosophy, Journal of Politics, Political Theory, Political Studies, British Journal of Political Science, Critical Review of Social and Political Philosophy, and Political Studies Review, as well as in several edited volumes. She is the co-editor of Philanthropy in Democratic Societies (University of Chicago Press, 2017). At the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics she will work on a book project, provisionally entitled Privatizing Justice, which provides a non-instrumental account of the ethical limits of privatization and develops principles of justice and legitimacy for contexts where both the funding and the provision of justice-required goods are increasingly privatized.
