Matthew Hamilton is a political theorist whose research specializes in democratic, legal, and critical theory. He completed his PhD at the University of Toronto.

In addition to teaching in the area of history of political thought and moral philosophy, Professor Hamilton's teaching interests include legal/constitutional theory and human rights, genocide studies, post-colonialism, global justice, feminism, public policy and public administration.

His work includes his dissertation and book project, Praxis and Critique: On Fugitive Politics, and his most recent publication, co-authored with Cody Trojan, is the chapter “Sovereignty as Responsibility” (Rousseau Today, Palgrave MacMillan, 2023).

Professor Hamilton's current writing project examines the debate between early twentieth century German legal theorists, and the relevance of this debate to contemporary legal and political thought and action.
