She earned a B.A., L.L.B., and M.A. at Tel Aviv University, and a Ph.D in Political Theory at Balliol College, Oxford University, in 2000. She works on the political theory of territorial rights, liberal nationalism, and the philosophical questions surrounding war and terrorism.
Meisels is known for advocating a consistent and strict definition of terrorism, which she defines as "the intentional random murder of defenseless non-combatants, with the intent of instilling fear of mortal danger amidst a civilian population as a strategy designed to advance political ends."
She has written on the complexities of applying international law to terrorists, who are neither soldiers nor civilians.
