About the department
The Department of Ethics, Law and Politics, formerly directed by Ayelet Shachar, was established in July 2015. The Department’s thematic focus is the study of citizenship, migration and diversity from the joint perspectives of law and political theory. The research agenda is informed by the search for answers to cutting-edge theoretical, ethical and legal puzzles; comparative approaches, inter-disciplinary inquiry and international collaboration are strongly encouraged.
