Bioethics, practical reason, jurisprudence, theoretical criminology.
Binesh Hass is a Research Fellow at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, a Research Associate at the Centre for Criminology, and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford. His work centres on two research projects: (i) the legal regulation of certain medical technologies, such as germline genetic modification, by relying on constitutional and rule of law principles; and (ii) genetic profiling and sentencing practices, drawing in particular from theoretical criminology, jurisprudence, and bioethics.
Binesh received his DPhil in Law from the University of Oxford with a thesis on the possibility conditions of reasons for action in the law, focussing in particular on legal rules. In 2009, he co-founded the Women’s Rights Research Seminars in Oxford, which continues to focus interdisciplinary attention on the status of women in settings of legal disadvantage. He has also held visiting research fellowships in legal and political philosophy at the École normale supérieure in Paris (Ulm) and at Freie and Humboldt universities in Berlin.
