Rebecca Buxton

I am a lecturer in political theory at the University of Cambridge, specialising in migration, statelessness, and the work of Judith Shklar. I teach two courses on the MPhil in Politics and International Studies: Borders, Migration and Displacement, and Feminist Political Thought. 

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.
