Hurri photo

LL.D. Samuli Hurri's field is legal theory and philosophy. His latest publication "Birth of the European Individual: Law, Security, Economy" (Routledge 2014) consists of six case studies on Europeans expelled from an EC Member State in the 1970's. Currently, his problem is how to generate ethical firmness as resilience to external power in human individuals. In quest of the effects of the use of legal language on its speaker's moral constitution, Samuli Hurri works on a method of examining legal cases from the point of view of moral struggles, testing it on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights.
