Max Gabriel Cherem

Max Gabriel Cherem

Assistant Professor of Philosophy

-- Kalamazoo College
HWL Affiliation: Visiting Faculty Fellow
Year Visiting: 2015 to 2016

Professor Cherem will be working with Professor Allen Buchanan in the Philosophy Department and with Professor Suzanne Shanahan in the Kenan Institute for Ethics.  Professor Cherem's work focuses on the ethical challenges created by "externalized" state border controls: policies that try to prevent migrant arrival by projecting or outsourcing a nation's authority over migration beyond its regular territorial borders. While at Duke he will work on two research projects about the due process standards appropriate for refugee status adjudications and the ethical issues raised by partnerships that delegate or coordinate authority.  He also plans on volunteering with the refugee community in Durham area so as to learn about resettlement from their perspective.
