About Dr. Horton

Keith Horton’s main research interests are in moral and political philosophy, especially the moral implications of world poverty, global ethics, moral methodology, partial compliance theory, the demandingness of morality, and more recently academia and activism.

Keith has co-founded the following three organisations:

  • Academics Stand Against Poverty,an international community of scholars and researchers working to confront the rules and practices that perpetuate global poverty
  • Academics Stand Against Poverty Oceania, the local chapter of Academics Stand Against Poverty
  • Global Climate Change Week, which aims to encourage academic communities– including academics, students, and professional staff at universities – in all disciplines and countries to engage with each other, their communities, and policy makers on climate change

When not philosophising Keith likes to go bushwalking and take photographs, and to play the guitar and mandolin, especially with the Con Artists.
