The research areas of Perica Jovchevski cover topics in political, moral and social philosophy (personal autonomy, justice, gender injustice, war, transitional justice, nationalism). His broader research interests include the philosophy of human rights, the relation between archives and social justice and the ethics of memory.
He is currently working on his doctoral project, “The Value of Personal Autonomy”, which aims at developing a relational theory of autonomy within the normative context of liberal egalitarian justice. The theory treats autonomy and justice as interlocking values and is applied in the context of structural injustices.
