Dr. Barilan's research subjects are Bioethics, Biolaw and Medical Humanities. His own personal interests encompass moral theory and the intersections among bioethics, social history and related normative domains, such as law and religion, especially Halakhah (Jewish religious law), and explores human rights law and international humanitarian law in the light of the contemporary ethical and meta-ethical discourse.
