Alon Harel is Mizock Professor of Law and a member of Federmann Center for the Study of Rationality. Professor Harel works in several fields: moral and political philosophy, criminal law theory, constitutional law theory and also law and economics and behavioral law and economics. 

His book Why Law Matters (OUP, 2014) challenges the view that law is merely an instrument designed to render the right or correct in decisions. It maintains that often legal institutions and legal procedures matter as such. For instance, it is argued in chapter 3 of this book that there are certain decisions, eg, the infliction of punishment for crimes that must be made by public rather than private institutions. It also defends the intrinsic value of constitutional directives and of judicial review. 

More recently, Professor Harel has investigated in a series of papers the vices of privatization. In his edited book Companion on Privatization (CUP, 2021), Professor Harel discusses critically the different justifications provided for privatization and, in particular, stresses the distinct role of the state as an institution which represents citizens and acts on their behalf.

Professor Harel works currently on a book on the authority of the state where he argues that ultimately the state’s authority is grounded in its ability to speak in the name of all. This explains why political authority is necessarily public; it represents those who are subject to it and, consequently, those who are subject to it are, in principle, accountable for the authority’ decisions.

Tal Jonathan-Zamir is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Criminology, Faculty of Law, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She received her M.Sc. from the Center for Investigative Psychology, University of Liverpool, in 2003, and her Ph.D. from the Hebrew University in 2011. Subsequently, Tal completed a Fulbright post-doctoral fellowship at the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University. Her work focuses on policing, particularly on police-community relations and evidence-based policing. Using both quantitative and qualitative methods, she investigated police legitimacy and procedural justice from the perspective of citizens, communities, police officer, and neutral observers, in diverse contexts such as routine encounters, security threats, protest events, and airport security. She has also examined the psychological mechanisms underlying police officers’ orientation to evidence-based policing, and more recently – the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on police-community relations in Israel. Tal is the recipient of the 2010-2011 Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program, the 2015 Early Career Award from the Division of Policing of the American Society of Criminology, and the 2015 Young Scholar Award from the Israeli Society of Criminology.
