Turkuler Isiksel is the James P. Shenton Assistant Professor of the Core Curriculum at Columbia University and teaches in the Department of Political Science. She holds a PhD in political science from Yale University and works primarily in contemporary political theory. She is the author of Europe’s Functional Constitution. A Theory of Constitutionalism beyond the State (Oxford University Press, May 2016), which argues that the economically driven process of European integration has brought into being a qualitatively distinct form of constitutional practice that must be distinguished from traditional rights-based and democratic models of constitutionalism. Isiksel’s other research interests include the themes of commerce and international politics in eighteenth century political thought, as well as contemporary theories of sovereignty, constitutional rule, citizenship, cosmopolitanism, and Turkey-E.U. relations. Isiksel has held a Jean Monnet postdoctoral fellowship at the European University Institute (2010-2011), a LAPA/Perkins Fellowship at Princeton University’s Law and Public Affairs Program (2014-2015), an Emile Noël Fellow at NYU Law School (Fall 2015), and a visiting research fellowship at the Justitia Amplificata Centre at Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt-am-Main (Summer 2015).
