Sebba is an associate professor at the Institute of Criminology, Faculty of Law, Hebrew University and is on the faculty committee for the Minerva Human Rights Centre located there. He has written and taught on a range of criminal justice and children’s rights issues in Israel. In addition to his academic roles, he has been a board member of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), Defense of Children International (Israel Chapter) and a member of the steering committee for the Women’s Network project on victims of sex offenses in Israel.
