Gil Rothschild Elyassi pict 1Gil Rothschild Elyassi is a post-doctoral fellow at the Minerva Center for the Rule of Law under Extreme Conditions. Gil’s work focuses on institutional violence, criminal law and punishment, knowledge production across worlds and under conditions of domination, and the interaction between law, technologies, and human life. Gil’s work is trans-disciplinary, and it primarily draws on ethnographic, historical and collaborative research.
Gil completed a PhD at UC Berkeley in 2021 alongside a designated emphasis in critical theory. Gil’s dissertation explores community/penal supervision as an institution tasked with seeing and acting across the color line, that is across worlds that exist side by side under conditions of racial and economic domination. Prior to that, Gil attained an LLM at New York University (as a Hauser Global Scholar) and an LLB at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Alongside teaching and research, Gil is committed to documenting institutional violence also in non-academic areans, as well as to coming with others to create and sustain spaces for mutual care, support and hope.
