  1. Frank Lovett (forthcoming). A Republican Theory of Adjudication. Res Publica:1-18.
    In recent years there has been a revival of interest in civic republicanism. In light of this revival, it is interesting to consider what sort of theory of legal or judicial adjudication such a doctrine—centered on the value of promoting freedom from domination—would recommend. After discussing the importance of such a theory and clarifying its relationship to broader questions of institutional design, it is argued that theories of adjudication should be assessed according to three criteria: first, their contribution to the (...)

  2. Frank Lovett (2010). A General Theory of Domination and Justice. OUP Oxford.
    In all societies, past and present, many persons and groups have been subject to domination. Properly understood, domination is a great evil, the suffering of which ought to be minimized so far as possible.

  5. Frank Lovett (2007). Consent and the Legitimacy of Punishment: Response to Brettschneider. Political Theory 35 (6):806 - 810.
    In his paper, "The Right of the Guilty," Corey Brettschneider aims to develop and defend a theory of punishment within the framework of a liberal-contractarian conception of political legitimacy. My response argues that this attempt to extend the liberal-contractarian theory reveals, in a particularly clear and striking manner, deep and ultimately insurmountable conceptual difficulties for that theory.
