A Professor of public law in the Faculty of Law since 2010, Noura Karazivan starts every class by asking students to analyse local and international news as it relates to the subject in question, whether it be federalism, constitutional values or the protection of fundamental rights. Her first goal is to share her knowledge, as well as foster the acquisition of new analytical and conflict resolution skills. Her approach, in both her teaching and research capacities, is to integrate the theoretical dimensions of law with its practical aspects. Her work explores questions relating to federalism, constitutional rights, application and scope of rights guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. She is, above all, passionate about the manner in which law is shaped by borders. Constitutional law, as seen through the prism of geographical analysis of law, enables Noura Karazivan to better understand how norms can vary according to territories, whether they be physical or abstract. Conducting research and teaching in this domain allows her to investigate the paradigmatic link between law and territory, and to explore new cornerstones of identity, belonging to a given political community and government authority.
