I am Liam Shields and this is my website. I am a Lecturer in Political Theory at the University of Manchester. I am interested in the theoretical and applied-theoretical aspects of Political Philosophy. To date my research has sought to clarify and defend Sufficientarianism, the view that providing people with enough of some goods, such as wealth or happiness, is an important requirement of social justice. In particular, I have argued that providing a good enough upbringing and enough autonomy are important demands of justice and I have examined the implications of these fundamental moral commitments for practical debates about religious schooling and the practices of fostering and adoption. On this website you can find out more about my research. Here's my CV. You can also follow me on twitter.
