    Why Only the State May Inflict Criminal Sanctions: The Case Against Privately Inflicted Sanctions: Alon Harel.Alon Harel - 2008 - Legal Theory 14 (2):113-133.
    Criminal sanctions are typically inflicted by the state. The central role of the state in determining the severity of these sanctions and inflicting them requires justification. One justification for state-inflicted sanctions is simply that the state is more likely than other agents to determine accurately what a wrongdoer justly deserves and to inflict a just sanction on those who deserve it. Hence, in principle, the state could be replaced by other agents, for example, private individuals. This hypothesis has given rise (...)

    Computers Ltd: What They Really Can't Do.David Harel - 2003 - Oxford University Press.
    In Computers Ltd, David Harel, best-selling author of Algorithmics, explains and illustrates one of the most fundamental, yet under-exposed facets of computers - their inherent limitations. Looking at the bad news that is proven, lasting, and robust, discussing limitations that no amounts of hardware, software, talents, or resources can overcome, the book presents a disturbing and provocative view of computing at the start of the 21st century.

    Why Law Matters.Alon Harel - 2014 - Oxford University Press.
    Why Law Matters argues that public institutions and legal procedures are valuable and matter as such, irrespective of their instrumental value. Examining the value of rights, public institutions, and constitutional review, the book criticises instrumentalist approaches in political theory, claiming they fail to account for their enduring appeal.

    The Duty to Criminalize.Alon Harel - 2015 - Law and Philosophy 34 (1):1-22.
    The state has a duty to protect individuals from violations of their basic rights to life and liberty. But does the state have a duty to criminalize such violations? Further, if there is a duty on the part of the state to criminalize violations, should the duty be constitutionally entrenched? This paper argues that the answer to both questions is positive. The state has a duty not merely to effectively prevent violations of our rights to life and liberty, but also (...)

    Whose Home Is It? Reflections on the Palestinians' Interest in Return.Alon Harel - 2004 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 5 (2):333-366.
    This paper investigates whether Palestinians have an interest in return rather than a mere interest in settling within the territory of a state that provides them with civil rights and economic opportunities. The paper establishes the following three claims. First, Palestinians have some interests in return to the territory of Palestine-Israel. Second, many of these interests can be satisfied by establishing an independent Palestinian state in part of historical Palestine. Third, some of these interests are similar to the interests that (...)

    An Economic Rationale for the Legal Treatment of Omissions in Tort Law: The Principle of Salience.Assaf Jacob & Alon Harel - 2002 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 3 (2).
    This paper provides an economic justification for the exemption from liability for omissions in torts and for the exceptions to this exemption. It interprets the differential treatment of acts and omissions under tort law as a proxy for a more fundamental distinction between harms caused by multiple injurers, where each one can single-handedly prevent the harm, and harms caused by a single injurer. Since the overall cost to which a group of injurers is exposed is constant, attributing liability to many (...)

    This book is a collection consisting of an introduction and nine essays that explore foundational aspects of criminal law. As the introduction makes clear, the book is eclectic and the essays can be classified under three main headings. The first group of essays explores the political constitution of criminal law as part of the institutional structure of the state. The second group of essays investigates the question of the authority of criminal law and its potential to create reasons for action. (...)

    Defending Why Law Matters: Responses to Commentaries.Alon Harel - 2017 - Criminal Law and Philosophy 11 (4):847-859.
    Why Law Matters examines various legal and political institutions and procedures and argues that the desirability of these institutions and procedures is not contingent and does not hinge on the prospects that these institutions are conducive to the realization of valuable ends. Instead, various legal institutions and legal procedures that are often perceived as contingent means to facilitate the realization of valuable ends matter as such.

    Rights-Based Judicial Review: A Democratic Justification. [REVIEW]A. Harel - 2003 - Law and Philosophy 22 (s 3-4):247-276.
    This paper investigates the accusation that judicial review is undemocratic. It argues that the alleged tension between judicial review and democracy fails to account for the fact that the content of rights and their scope depends on societal convictions and moral judgments of the public. Such dependence suggests that rights-based judicial review can be described as an alternative form of democratic participation.

    Against Privatisation As Such.Avihay Dorfman & Alon Harel - 2016 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 36 (2):400-427.
    Privatisation has occupied the attention of theorists of different disciplines. Yet, despite the multiplicity of perspectives, the typical arguments concerning privatisation are instrumental, relying heavily on comparing the performance of a public functionary with that of its private counterpart. This article challenges this approach for leaving unaddressed other important consequences of shifting responsibilities to private entities. More specifically, privatisation cuts off the link between processes of decision-making and the citizens, and therefore erodes political engagement and its underlying notion of shared (...)

    Regulating Modesty-Related Practices.Alon Harel - 2007 - Law and Ethics of Human Rights 1 (1):213-236.
    This Paper explores the justifications for regulating modesty-related practices in liberal societies and uses two examples of modesty-related practices— the practice of wearing the hijab and the practice of separating men and women in buses—in order to demonstrate that modesty-related practices often rest on different rationales. Some of these rationales are oppressive and discriminatory while other are benign or even autonomy-enhancing. The multiplicity of meanings associated with modesty-related practices is a challenge to the policy maker. The Paper proposes that sometimes (...)

    Alon Harel on How to Deliberate Permissibly.Adam Slavny - 2017 - Criminal Law and Philosophy 11 (4):833-846.
    Alon Harel defines extreme cases as those in which the only way to avert a destructive threat is to harm innocent people. He rejects traditional consequentialist and non-consequentialist approaches because of the type of reasoning they both employ. I interpret Harel as making two central objections to this form of reasoning. First, traditional approaches require comparisons to be made about the value of human life. Second, decisions in extreme cases, even if permissible, should not be made under the (...)

    Governmental Power: Quality or Identity? Comment on Alon Harel's Argument Against Outsourcing Violence.Re'em Segev - 2011 - Law and Ethics of Human Rights 5 (2):416-423.
    What is the appropriate division of power between public officials and private individuals? The straightforward answer to this question, it seems, is that an official should have a power if she employs it (morally) better compared to a private individual. However, Alon Harel argues that this answer is misguided, or at least partially, since there are some decisions—mainly concerning the employment of violence—that should be made and implemented only by public officials regardless of the (relative) moral quality of the (...)

    Rights and Reasons: A Response to Harel.Andrew Halpin - 1998 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 18 (3):485-495.
    This article considers a recent attempt by Alon Harel ((1997) 17 OJLS 101) to shed light on the nature of rights by examining the way derivative rights are recognized as instances of more fundamental rights. It criticizes the way Harel seeks to make a distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic reasons for rights, and so to establish a distinctive operation of practical reasoning for rights. The rationales linked to particular rights, and stated more generally within competing rights theories, are (...)
