Eva Erman

Professor, Political Science

Professor Department of Political Science, Stockholm University and Pro Futura Fellow at SCAS in Uppsala. Before 2015 I was a full professor at the Department of Government, at Uppsala University.

I work in the field of political philosophy. My research focuses on democratic theory, specifically on questions of democracy beyond the state, in a global context, as well as methodological and metatheoretical questions in political theory, such as questions about ideal and non-ideal theory and feasibility.
