Sebastían Rudas

Adjunct Instructor

I teach political philosophy at the School of International Relations at Fundação Getúlio Vargas. I also teach philosophy at the Universidade Federal de Uberlândia. I have been a post-doctoral researcher at RIPPLE – Research in Political Philosophy and Ethics Leuven (KU Leuven – Belgium) and at the Department of Political Science at Universidade de São Paulo. I earned a PhD in Political Theory from LUISS University (Italy), a M.A . in Philosophy from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and a B.A. in Philosophy from Universidad Nacional de Colombia.

My research is on political philosophy, more specifically, on the relationship between theories of legitimacy and cultural pluralism in contemporary democratic societies. I am interested in analyzing whether – and if so, how – indigenous peoples challenge dominant conceptions of the legitimacy of nation-states.
