Professor Singer’s teaching and research lies at the intersection of business ethics and political theory. In his teaching, Singer aims to challenge students by exposing them to the grander and more abstract ideas and theories that inform the business world they are entering, and the sorts of moral dilemmas they will find themselves facing.
In his research, Singer’s work critically appraises the commercial activity and economic institutions we take for granted by considering them in light of our background socio-political institutions and the underlying moral commitments they imply. His most recent research has focused on the internal governance of corporations and its relationship to social justice. This research has been published in leading business ethics and political science journals, as well as a forthcoming book from Oxford University Press.
Professor Singer has also begun new research projects on the relationship between business ethics and democratic theory; the nature of structural racism in America and the moral duties it imposes on individual, corporate, and governmental actors; and the ethics of organized labor.
