Radzik works on moral issues that arise in the aftermath of wrongdoing. Her book, Making Amends: Atonement in Morality, Law, and Politics, was published by Oxford University Press in 2009. She is currently writing about "moral bystanders," and the roles third parties to moral conflicts play in enforcing and promulgating norms. Radzik has also written about the ethics of forgiveness, criminal punishment and collective moral responsibility. She is interested in the intersection of Kantian moral theory and feminist thought. Her work in metaethics focuses on the problem of justifying the authority of normative claims, including claims about epistemic justification.
