Institut des Sciences Juridique et Philosophe de la Sorbonne (ISJPS)

The Institute of Legal and Philosophical Sciences of the Sorbonne (ISJPS) is a mixed multidisciplinary research unit bringing together jurists and philosophers. Its dual oversight is the University of Paris1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and the CNRS. The ISJPS is developing a transversal analysis on the future of standards and categories faced with the challenges of the contemporary world. There are four main directions for the research led at the Institute: Democracy, Gender, Environment, Corporate social responsibility. There are five research centers: Center for Comparative Law, Center for Research in Constitutional Law, Center for Studies and Research on Public Administration, Center for Contemporary Philosophy and Center for Standards, Science and Technology Research.

In addition to my comparative constitutional law projects (related to France, Israel, the United Kingdom and Poland), I currently cooperate with the research group working on Democracy, that is led by both the philosophers (Center for Contemporary Philosophy) and the constitutional lawyers (Center for Research in Constitutional Law) of the ISJPS, and in cooperation with political scientists. In addition I have been engaged in the activities led by the Center for Comparative Law, developing research in the field of “teaching comparative law”.
