Binesh Hass is a Research Fellow at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford. His work centres on two research projects at the junction of practical ethics and law: (i) reasoning in mental capacity law and (ii) predictive ethics and discrimination law.
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, which continues to focus interdisciplinary attention on the status of women in settings of legal disadvantage. Beyond Oxford, he has 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.
