Annual Jonathan Trejo-Mathys Essay Prize awarded to Tadhg Ó Laoghaire (Gothenburg)


The Global Justice Network is very pleased to announce the winner of the fifth annual Jonathan Trejo-Mathys Essay Prize, awarded to recognize a stellar contribution to the political theory and philosophy of global justice, which was one of Jonathan Trejo-Mathys’ areas of scholarship. The prize is sponsored by the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy at Boston College.

This year’s prize goes to Tadhg Ó Laoghaire, Postdoctoral Researcher in Economic Ethics at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, for his essay “Business and Bleeding Hearts: Why Multinational Corporations Have a Responsibility to Encourage Cosmopolitan Concern.” The committee believes that the essay makes an important contribution to the scholarship on cosmopolitanism, political responsibility, and the role of corporations in the global order.

The prize-winning essay will be published in a forthcoming issue of Global Justice: Theory, Practice, Rhetoric. Dr. Ó Laoghaire will also receive $1000.00 and be invited to present his paper at Boston College.
