Globaltrust research project call for applications
Beginning this year, the GlobalTrust research project at Tel Aviv University Faculty of Law will study the extent to which states that exercise regulatory functions should take into account the interests and preferences of foreign individuals and communities located outside their boundaries. The project is informed by the observation that by their regulatory measures, states routinely affect the life-opportunities of foreigners without the latter being able to participate meaningfully in shaping those measures. Such decision-making fails to respect the participatory rights of those foreigners and often yields outcomes that are not welfare maximizing and non-egalitarian. Participants in this project will explore the possible moral and legal grounds for requiring states to take other-regarding considerations into account and the institutional mechanisms that could legitimize the external review of states’ compliance with such obligations.
Funded by a European Research Council Advanced Grant, the project offers three types of fellowships: post-doctoral, doctoral and short-term visiting fellowships.
