John Wall is a theoretical ethicist who works at the intersection of political philosophy, post-structuralism, and children's rights. His nine books, along with articles, chapters, podcasts, interviews, and other work, explore what it means to expand normative imaginations in response to lived experiences of difference. He is best known for his innovative concept of childism, or the structural empowerment of children, as well as his advocacy for ageless suffrage.
