Rebecca Buxton

I am a Lecturer in Social and Political Philosophy at the University of Bristol, working on migration, displacement, citizenship, and exile. 

My current research looks at the political rights of refugees in various settings and the concept of 'membership' in political and social theory. 
I am also interested in migration studies, history of political thought, non-human animals, and feminist philosophy/political theory. 

I completed my BA in Philosophy at King's College London in 2016 and my MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies in 2017. I then briefly worked a Parliamentary Researcher in the UK House of Commons before returning to Oxford for my DPhil. 

I was previously the Stipendiary Lecturer in Politics and Organising Tutor at St Anne's College, Oxford. Here I taught history of political thought, contemporary political philosophy, and the ethics of migration and displacement.
