About the Author

Udit Bhatia is Lecturer in Political Theory at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, UK. He is a doctoral candidate at the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford, and his research interests lie at the intersections of democratic theory, political representation and social epistemology. He is currently examining the normative case against exclusion of persons from democratic citizenship on the basis of epistemic inferiority.
