He later received his J.D from Yale Law School, and is now a Bemis professor of International Law at Harvard University. Dr. Feldman worked as an advisor in the early days of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq following the 2003 invasion. He regularly contributes features and opinion pieces to The New York Times Magazine and is a senior adjunct fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. His work focuses on studying the intersection of religion, politics and law, with a particular focus on how Islam meshes with modern democracy.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
