Dr Nicholas Barry Senior Lecturer, Politics

Nicholas' research and teaching interests are in the areas of Australian politics, political institutions, and political theory. He is currently working on a defence of luck egalitarianism, which is a responsibility-sensitive, luck-insensitive theory of justice, and he is also examining the links between contemporary egalitarian theory and policy debates over disadvantage and welfare reform. Nicholas is also working on human rights protection in Australia, with a particular focus on Australia's National Human Rights Framework, and he has future work planned on constitutionalism, democracy and judicial politics. He currently teaches units on Australian political institutions, public policy, human rights, and contemporary liberalism (and its critics).
