Dr Piero Moraro
Book Review Editor
Edith Cowan University, Australia
Dr. Moraro is a political theorist who works on topics at the intersection of law, politics and morality. He holds a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Stirling, Scotland, where he worked under the supervision of Prof. Antony Duff. He also has a Master in Philosophy and Public Policy from the London School of Economics. From 2012 to 2020, Piero was a Lecturer in Criminal Justice at the Centre for Law and Justice at Charles Sturt University. Currently, he works as Lecturer in Criminology at Edith Cowan University.
In his research, Piero has focused predominantly on problems of state legitimacy and political obligation, with reference to the following questions: 1) what, if anything, is wrong with disobeying the law, i.e. with committing what are usually considered ‘mala prohibita’?; 2) what is the difference between ‘civil’ and ‘uncivil’ disobedience’ of the law?; 3) how should democratic institutions respond to citizens who engage in civil disobedience? He has addressed these questions in his recent book Civil Disobedience: a Philosophical Overview (Rowman and Littlefield Intl) and in numerous peer-reviewed journal articles. Piero is also interested in the justification (or lack of thereof) of compulsory voting and in debates about non-retributive penal policies.
