Jennifer Rubenstein is Assistant Professor of Politics at the University of Virginia. Her interests include the political role and moral responsibilities of international non-governmental organizations; how the concept of justice is deployed in debates about global issues; democratic theory (especially theories of non-electoral representation and advocacy that attend to global inequalities), the idea of “non-ideal” theory; theories of office, and the relationship between imagination and politics. She has published or has forthcoming articles in The Journal of Politics, The Journal of Political Philosophy, and The Journal of Social Philosophy, as well as chapters in several edited volumes. She is currently working on a book manuscript about how international antipoverty NGOs interpret, specify, and apply liberal cosmopolitan norms. She was previously a postdoctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows at Princeton University.
