Amos Guiora, a professor of law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law and retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Israel Defense Forces, was recently named a Corresponding Member to the School of Human Rights Research at Utrecht University, one of the oldest universities in the Netherlands.
Guiora first became involved with the School of Human Rights Research three years ago while working on his forthcoming book Freedom of/from Religion. He has taught seminars to young researchers, given lectures, participated in group discussions and mentored individual researchers.
As a Corresponding Member, Guiora will have unrestricted access to the School’s research facilities and be given dedicated office space. He will also be offered additional opportunities to collaborate on projects sponsored by Ultrecht University.
“It’s an extraordinary honor to be named a Corresponding Member to the School of Human Rights Research, Europe’s leading human rights institute,” Guiora said. “In that role, I will continue to conduct dialogue with leading European academics on issues germane to human rights.”
