Keele professor secures human rights research fellowship at Oxford University
A Keele University professor has secured a prestigious human rights research fellowship at Oxford University.
Professor Yossi Nehushtan, a Professor of Law and Philosophy, will be a Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford during the first part of 2022 after securing a Research Fellowship at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
During his time in Oxford, Professor Nehushtan's research will focus on three topics; ‘Lockdowns and Intergenerational Justice’, proposing that lockdowns were acts of institutional and systematic discrimination against younger generations; ‘Religious Faith v Sexual Identity’, with the argument that, in the clash between the two, within the context of equality laws, the latter should prevail; and ‘Forbidden Words, Cancel Culture, and Cultural Appropriation’, where the fast-developing culture of liberal intolerance, censorship and silencing will be explored.
Students from Keele's School of Law will accompany Professor Nehushtan during parts of his Fellowship, to provide research assistance and participate in research activities at the Institute - including presenting research papers that they have been writing together.
Professor Nehushtan said: “I am delighted to be offered the research fellowship. I look forward to collaborating with other researchers in Oxford, to present my research at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights - also with my Keele students and co-authors, and to offer exciting research experience and opportunities for Keele's law students in one of the best universities and Law faculties in the world."
