Julen Etxabe is the Canada Research Chair in Jurisprudence and Human Rights and Assistant Professor at the Peter A. Allard School of Law of British Columbia. Grounded on cultural and humanistic approaches to law, his current research seeks to identify a new model of dialogical judgment emerging in the area of human rights, which is transforming inherited notions of reasoning, rights, authority, and law in the post-national and diverse societies of the 21st century. Prior to joining UBC, Professor Etxabe was a Core Fellow at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies and postdoctoral researcher at the Center of Excellence in Foundations of European Law in Helsinki. Etxabe holds a doctoral degree from the University of Michigan Law School and a LLM degree from the European Academy of Legal Theory. He is the author of The Experience of Tragic Judgment (Routledge, 2013) and has edited three other books: Cultural History of Law in Antiquity (Bloomsbury, 2019), Rancière and Law (Routledge, 2018) and Living in a Law Transformed: Encounters with the Works of James Boyd White (Michigan, 2014). From 2012 to 2017 he was editor-in-chief of No-Foundations: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Law and Justice.
