Dr. Ronen Shnayderman

Research Fellow

Ronen Shnayderman holds a BA in political science & philosophy and an MA in philosophy, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a DPhil in political philosophy from Nuffield College, University of Oxford. Currently he is a lecturer at the Department of Politics, University of Rostock. Previously he was a visiting post-doc at the European University Institute in Florence; a lecturer at the Department of Philosophy, University of Hamburg; and a visiting researcher at the Cambridge Forum for Legal and Political Philosophy, University of Cambridge. 

His research interests are in political philosophy. He is particularly interested in the fundamental normative concepts that stand at the intersection of politics, philosophy, and economics, such as freedom, equality and justice, as well as in democratic theory and normative international theory and international law.

His research at the Weizenbaum Institute will be concerned with the question of whether there is anything wrong with states influencing public spheres of other states by means of digital media, and if so what exactly. Many people - scholars, politicians, and laymen alike - seem to think that there is something wrong with it. But there are virtually no arguments in the literature supporting (or objecting) this view.
