I am a Lecturer in Political Economy Education at King’s College London. I teach seminars in Political Theory, Politics, and PPE in the department, and supervise MA and BA dissertations.

My research interests are in global justice, political philosophy, and philosophy of law. In particular, I write about justice in migration and asylum law and practice.

Before coming to King’s I received my PhD from the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania in May 2020. My dissertation, ‘The Right to Refuge, and What Happens Next’, concerned the scope of the right to refuge in international law and refugee rights to family reunion and integration upon receipt of asylum in a host state.

A full copy of my academic CV (last updated June 2021) can be found here.

I will be co-convening a workshop entitled ‘Global Justice Beyond States’ at this year’s MANCEPT Workshops in Political Theory with Mike Gadomski. The event page for our workshop can be found here. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by emailing eilidh.beaton@kcl.ac.uk and mgadomsk@sas.upenn.edu.
