Professor Spinner-Halev’s research focuses on the tensions that arise within contemporary liberal and democratic theory, and between theory and practice. He wrote The Boundaries of Citizenship:  Race, Ethnicity and Nationality in the Liberal State (1994) and Surviving Diversity: Religion and Democratic Citizenship  (2000) and co-edited Minorities within Minorities: Equality, Right and Diversity (2005). He has written many book chapters and articles, which have appeared in a number of journals, including  Ethics, the Journal of Political Philosophy, Political Theory, Political Studies and Perspectives on Politics.

Spinner-Halev’s current research project is on radical injustice — injustices that linger on, without apparent remedy.  This project has a comparative cast, and is fueled by examples from the U.S., Israel and India. I have been a Laurance S. Rockefeller Fellow at the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University, a Lady Davis Fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies, also at Hebrew University.
