Professor Panagos is a specialist in the study of contemporary political philosophy and Aboriginal rights, with research contributions combining both normative and empirical concerns. He has published work on aboriginality, Aboriginal rights, Aboriginal voting behaviour and resource governance. He is currently working on a monograph on settler states, Aboriginal peoples and the problem of political obligation. He is also engaged in a number of collaborative research projects focused on, first, First nations and the governance of mineral resources in Canada, and, second, the participation of Aboriginal peoples in elections in Canada and the United States.
