Kim Treiger-Bar-Am

Kim Treiger-Bar-Am is a legal academic in Israel. Her education began at Yale University in philosophy and then law, with master's and doctoral studies in law at the University of Oxford. Kim recently published “Positive Freedom and the Law”. In it, she explores how Kantian philosophy and Jewish thought give rise to a concept of positive freedom. At heart, freedom is inextricably linked to the obligation to respect the autonomy and dignity of others. It requires relationships with others and provides an important source of meaning in liberal democratic societies. Jerusalem’s Women of the Wall are explored as a test case of freedom and respect.
