Human Rights and Liberal Justice in Israel
In 2014, the Minerva Center for Human Rights at Tel Aviv University launched its special project: "Human Rights and Liberal Justice in Israel". The project aims to explore historically and critically the contributions of Jewish organizations and leaders to the development of international human rights law, as well as alternative conceptualizations and resistance to the dominant human rights discourse. It promotes education, research, and conferences about the history of human rights.
In 2014-2015, the project will include: the Annual Minerva Lecture, to be given by renown historian of Human Rights, Prof. Samuel Moyn; an international conference titled "Jewish Rights, Minority Rights, Human Rights?" to be held at TAU on March 17-19, 2015; a research group and research grants for LL.M, doctoral and postdoctoral students working on the history of human rights; courses taught by visiting professors; and a book grant to Prof. Nissim Mizrachi for his research on "Human Rights and Liberal Justice in Israel: A View from Below."
