Tamar Megiddo | Post-Doctoral Fellow
tamar.megiddo@law.nyu.edu
Tamar Megiddo : Post-Doctoral Fellow Tamar Megiddo is a J.S.D. candidate at New York University (NYU) School of Law. She holds an LL.M. in International Legal Studies from NYU School of Law, and an LL.B. in Law and the Humanities (Amirim Honors Program) from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 2009-2011 Tamar clerked for Israeli Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia. Tamar’s doctoral dissertation explores the role that individual people play in the practice of international law within their states. It argues that individuals’ participation in the practice of international law is more widespread than regularly acknowledged (that actually, every one of us can influence the way our states operate under international law), and that appreciating the breadth of individual practice is crucial to understanding international law’s traction in the domestic sphere. The dissertation argues, further, that international law – as law – does indeed enjoy such traction in that it serves, for participants in national policymaking processes, as a distinct factor to be taken into account when formulating national policy.
