My approach to teaching and writing is not so much focused on a doctrinal understanding of the law, but rather on interrogating our basic presumptions about the law in order to illuminate the social and political arrangements that organize the content of legal rules and principles.
In that work I tried to make sense of the intuition that our practice of holding people responsible through criminal law is not fully warranted when it comes to victims of severe economic injustice.

Cambridge University Press Journal Name: Abstract Through derechoo assessment of the normative implications of economic exploitation, the article seeks to strengthen the thesis that principles of egalitarian distributive justice should apply globally. The existence of an international economic order that produces relations of exploitation demands the application of the standards of an egalitarian distributive justice for two kinds of reasons.
First, because exploitation must be justified in a similar way and for similar reasons than coercion.
