Dworkin-Balzan Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Center for Law and Philosophy hosts Dworkin-Balzan Postdoctoral Fellowships in Law and Philosophy.

These fellowships partially implement the Research Project associated with the Balzan Prize awarded to the late Ronald Dworkin in 2012.

Fellows spend a year in residence at the Center for Law and Philosophy, and attend the Colloquium in Legal, Political, and Social Philosophy. They undertake a research project on some issue of legal, moral, and political philosophy of the kind that interested Ronald Dworkin. Such issues include: legitimacy, democracy, the rule of law, and the role of courts; international law and justice; the nature of rights; the relation between the moral life and the good life; philosophical foundations of substantive areas of law; legal interpretation; justice, equality, and the market economy; law and political obligation; and the objectivity of value.
