Biography

Elena Namli is Professor of Ethics at the Faculty of Theology, and one of the three research directors at UCRS Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies, both at Uppsala University. Her research interests include ethical theory, theological ethics, human rights, Sharia law and human rights law.

Elena Namli's current major project is entitled Human Rights as Ethics, Politics and Law. This project questions traditional Western conceptions of human rights and aims to provide an ethical analysis of contemporary human rights discourse with particular regard to its communicative aspects. Her other project, Social Ethics and the Russian Orthodox Tradition, examines the Russian Orthodox Church’s involvement in Russian politics and aims to suggest a critical analysis from a theological perspective.

Elena Namli is one of the founders of a two-year Master’s Program in Human Rights (in Swedish) at the Faculty of Theology and currently teaches a course entitled Rights in Conflict at the Stockholm School of Theology. She also teaches Ethics at the Faculty of Theology and supervises several doctoral dissertations (in Ethics).

At UCRS Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies, she leads an ambitious team of researchers who focus on processes that characterize Russia’s new, social and cultural identity (Identity Formation). The results of the team’s research have been published extensively in prominent international journals.

Professor Namli is fluent in Russian, Swedish and English and has published work in all three languages. Her most recent publications include Power and Legitimacy - Challenges from Russia and Religion och Politik i Ryssland, for which she was both contributor and co-editor.
