Alexandre Gajevic Sayegh


Welcome to my page. I am currently a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Political Science at McGill University. I am a fellow of the Research Group on Constitutional Studies (RGCS) and the Groupe de Recherche Interuniversitaire en Philosophie Politique (GRIPP). I was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow at the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and a Lecturer at the Department of Political Science at Yale University. At Yale, I lectured on ‘The Ethics of Climate Change’ and on ‘Markets and Morals’. I also collaborated with the Governance, Environment and Markets Initiative (GEM) at Yale. I am particularly interested in ethics and its relation to markets and climate change. My current research focusses on climate justice and development, collective action, markets, a green economy, as well as on the ethics of carbon pricing. I have obtained my Ph.D. in Philosophy at University College London in 2016. I have forthcoming book – titled Justice in a Non-Ideal World (London: Rowman and Littlefield International, 2019). The book casts light on the concepts that occupy the space between moral values and real-world politics. My articles have appeared in Ethics, Policy & Environment (Forthcoming), the Routledge Handbook in Climate Justice, the Journal of Global Ethics, Moral Philosophy and Politics, and the Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy. My recent research was supported by the FRQSC, UCL, Yale University and the SSHRC.
