Abstract

This chapter gives an overview of contemporary republican theory, with particular emphasis on the neo-Roman version associated with the work of Pettit and Skinner. Three sections discuss in turn the notion of the free person and the theory of freedom as non-domination, the conception of the free state required to institutionalise non-domination, and the implications of non-domination for distributive justice.

Keywords: republicanism, freedom, non-domination, free persons, free states, social justice
