About Valentina Gentile

My name is Valentina Gentile , I am Vice-Director of the CEGP (Center for Ethics and Global Politics) at LUISS University in Rome and a Lecturer in Political Philosophy at the same University. Since September 2016, I am  Guest Professor at the University of Antwerp, CUSANUS Chair in "Interreligious Dialogue and the Ethics of Peace".
I specialize in normative political theory, liberal theory and especially the work of John Rawls. My research focuses on religion and politics,  moral stability, pluralism and the principles of reciprocity, toleration, equality and social justice.

My recent publications include:


  • 2015: Rawls and Religion, (co-edited with T. Bailey), Columbia University Press, New York.
  • 2013: From Identity-Conflicts to Civil Society: Restoring Human Dignity and Pluralism in Deeply Divided Societies, Luiss University Press 2013, (with a Post-scriptum by Neera Chandhoke).
