Her first book, Emergencies in Public Law: The Legal Politics of Containment (CUP, 2016), explores emergencies as occasions for legal and institutional mobilization rather than exceptions to the legal order. Chapters from her current book project titled, Visions of Territory: Negotiating the Future of the Middle East 1915-1923 (under review with OUP) won prizes for best articles from Israel Law Review in 2016 and from Humanity: An International Journal of Human Rights, Humanitarianism, and Development, in 2021.
Dr. Loevy teaches introduction to international law and international law & violence at the New School’s Global Studies Program.
Prior to academia Dr. Loevy worked as a public law litigator in Israel where she practiced human rights law, criminal law, and administrative and constitutional law before civil and military courts and before the Israeli Supreme Court.
