Much of my research is concerned with the issue of political obligation. I am especially interested in whether such obligations extend beyond the state. In previous work, I challenged the assumption that a political obligation must be “particular” to one’s own state. In future work, I wish to consider more substantive questions. See Kevin Walton, “The Particularities of Legitimacy: John Simmons on Political Obligation” (2013) 26 Ratio Juris 1-15. See also Kevin Walton, “Is Democracy Sufficient for Political Obligation?” (2015) 28 Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 425-442.
