Biography:

Professor of Philosophy, University of Auckland, New Zealand

 

Gillian Brock has several current research interests. One major project focuses on migration and justice.  She explores ways in which migration policy can assist in reducing global injustices.  Recent work has tackled issues such as fair solutions to refugee crises, the kinds of policies that are permissible in tackling problems associated with the brain drain, and how migration policies might assist in reducing global poverty.  Some of her previous publications include Global Justice: A Cosmopolitan Account (Oxford University Press, 2009), also translated into Chinese (2014); Debating Brain Drain: May Governments Restrict Emigration? (Oxford University Press, 2015, with Michael Blake); and Cosmopolitanism versus Non-Cosmopolitanism (Oxford University Press, 2013, edited).  From 2013-2015 she was a Fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University.  She is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Auckland.
