Schira graduated as a political scientist with a focus on normative political theory at the Freie Universität Berlin. During her studies, she spent a year in Jerusalem at the Hebrew University and the regional office of the UNHCR. Back in Berlin, she was research assistant at a project dealing with normative standards in failed and failing states. Later, she interned at the ZIF rule of law project for civilian experts sent to vulnerable areas immediately after crises and worked as a translator on correspondence from the early stages of Israeli-German relations after the war. Her interest in claims to recognition and in moral status has led her to medical ethics, and until October, she will continue working at an academic society that furthers scientific development and strives for securing quality standards and the guarantee of medical care in pulmonary diseases. 

Field of Research: Re-interpreting Human Rights in the Light of Recognition: A New Approach to Crisis, Conflict, and Emergencies

Shira Kaiser shall focus at how we define ourselves as carriers of basic rights, what mutual recognition means in the face of imperilled moral claims and how it can be rebuilt when violated in conflict.
