Nick Cowen

I am a lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lincoln where I contribute to teaching in Key Social Science Concepts, Images of Crime and Applying Research.

I wrote my doctoral dissertation at King's College London on the political economy of distributive justice. I have a B.A. in Philosophy from University College London and an M.Phil. in Political Theory from the University of Oxford. I was a Fellow at the NYU School of Law from 2016 to 2019.

I have published research, among other places, in the American Journal of Political Science, The British Journal of Criminology, and Polity. I have work forthcoming in Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy. My research explores the epistemic challenges of maintaining a stable society with minimal reliance on the exercise of power.
