James P. Shenton Assistant Professor of the Core Curriculum, Columbia University

Turkuler Isiksel (Ph.D., Yale) works in contemporary political theory and is particularly interested in political institutions beyond the nation-state. Professor Isiksel combines the perspectives of normative theory, legal analysis, and institutionalist political science in her research. She is particularly interested in how descriptive and normative categories tailored to the nation-state apply to institutions that wield political power beyond that context.Professor Isiksel is currently at work on a book manuscript that evaluates the extent to which constitutionalism, as a normative and empirical concept, can be adapted to supranational institutions.
