Hillel Fradkin

Hillel Fradkin

Hillel Fradkin is the President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a research institute located in Washington, DC, as well as the director of its Islamic Studies and Jewish Studies programs. The mission of the Center is to consider contemporary public policy, both foreign and domestic, from the perspective of the requirements of ethical action, including the requirements of human rights, especially the right to religious freedom. One of its chief concerns is the actual and proper role of religion in politics and public life, both internationally and in the United States.

Dr. Fradkin earned his degree in Islamic History and Thought in 1978 from the Univ. of Chicago under the direction of the late Dr. Fazlur Rahman for work on the relationship of religion and politics in classical Muslim thought. He has a B.A. in Government from Cornell Univ.

Before joining the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Fradkin was the W.H. Brady, Jr. Fellow in Politics, Religion and Culture at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC. (1998-2001) His work concerned the role of religion in American democratic life as well as contemporary politics in the Muslim world. From 1986-1998, Fradkin was a member of the Committee on Social Thought at the Univ. of Chicago, where he taught the history of political and religious - Muslim, Christian and Jewish - thought as well as other courses in political science. For the same period, he was the vice-president of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a grantmaking institution which focuses on public policy research.

From 1979-1986, Fradkin was a member of the Department of Religion of Barnard College and Columbia University. He has also taught at Yale and Georgetown Universities and was the assistant director of the project on Islamic logic at the Univ. of Maryland. He has lectured at many academic institutions in the United States and abroad, including Harvard, Oxford, the Univ. of London, the Siemens Foundation of Munich, and the Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum in Rome. He is a frequent participant in conferences on Islam, the contemporary Middle East and religious freedom.

Fradkin was a member of the National Council of the National Endowment for the Humanities from 1988-1994 and of the Advisory Committee on International Education of the US Department of Education. From 1969-1972, he served in the US Army as an Arabic and Hebrew translator with the 5th Special Forces Group. He also speaks French.
