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 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 corporate personhood, commerce and international politics in Enlightenment thought, as well as theories of constitutional rule, citizenship, and cosmopolitanism.  Her research has appeared in Human Rights Quarterly, the European Journal of International Law (EJIL), International Journal of Constitutional Law (I*CON), Global Constitutionalism, the European Law Journal, and Constellations. Isiksel has served as a Jean Monnet postdoctoral fellow at the European University Institute, a LAPA/Perkins Fellow at Princeton University's Law and Public Affairs Program, an Emile Noël Fellow at NYU Law School, and a visiting research fellow at the Justitia Amplificata Centre at Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt-am-Main.
