Gisli is a PhD student in political theory, who completed an MA at Durham University. His research links social and political theory and considers the relationship between structure and agency, judgement and power, intentionality and responsibility. By approaching these issues from the perspective of various forms of realism in the social sciences, this research seeks to explore the character of active political agency, without obscuring its messy political context. His recent work includes a critical realist contribution to the conceptualisation of power and the revalorisation of Arendt on judgement for political realism.
Gisli is part of the ERC Project Greyzone
