Research Description

My research interests lie in constitutional and political theories related to borders. I explore how individuals at the margins of borders, such as migrant workers, pose challenges to the legitimacy of the so-called liberal democratic constitutional order. Currently, I am working on two research projects: one explores how the 'human-rightisation' of international labour rights may affect the state's obligations regarding social and economic rights (funded by Taiwan's National Science Council); the other investigates whether and how the state employs human rights as a governance tool (funded by the EU Horizon).

In the long run, I view my research as a critical project on the theoretical foundations of equality law, asking why equality does not work for marginalised people and exploring ways to make it effective. Through this approach, I hope to shed light on the hidden assumptions of equality law and foster dialogues between normative political and social theories and legal practices.
