Bio


Daniel Hutton Ferris is a democratic theorist working on political representation, transnational governance, and democratic innovations. His PhD research analyzed the way increasing fragmentation in electoral, administrative, and societal representation threatens the legibility and democratic legitimacy of the representative system. As a postdoctoral fellow at the McCoy Family Centre for Ethics in Society, Danny is thinking about whether or how it may be possible to realize democratic simplicity at the transnational level by reforming border-crossing processes of political representation in the EU and elsewhere.
