Ayelet Shachar (FRSC), Program Director & R.F. Harney Professor

Ayelet Shachar is a professor of Law, Political Science, and Global Affairs. She has published extensively on the topics of citizenship, global inequality, competitive migration regimes, cultural diversity and gender equality. Her research is motivated by the need to develop new legal principles to address the most pressing issues of our time: how to live together in diverse societies, how to grant rights to those who lack formal access to membership, and how to tame the ever-expanding reach of borders and migration control in a world of persistent inequality.
