David Mednicoff, former ISI fellow of the Emancipation seminar, attended two international conferences in Morocco and Germany, addressing the intersection between religion and legal politics. Mednicoff chaired a panel at the "Constitutionalism, Religious Freedom and Human Rights: Constitutional Migration and Transjudicialism Beyond the North Atlantic" conference in Hanover, Germany. A week later, he lead a two-day workshop in Rabat, Morocco on the ethics of political science research and teaching in the Middle East. Mednicoff's case study on Islam and legal politics, titled "Religion and Positionality in Research and Teaching," was included in the conference. Mednicoff was one of 20 scholars from around the world invited to participate.
