Class description

The Place of Law in Multiculturalism

This course covers many contemporary global and regional issues of multiculturalism and law, some of which are highly controversial, regarding state, society, and law. My purpose is to offer a multiplicity of theories, facts, and interpretations regarding many aspects of multiculturalism and law. The course will be innovative, on the one hand, and on the other hand, it welcomes class debates, class simulations, and active student participation. It is open to people with or without prior legal knowledge, since the course does not deal with formalities but with conflicts in the field of state, society, civil and human rights. For further information you are invited to write Professor Gad Barzilai,
