Marie-Claire Baroness Foblets is a Belgian lawyer and anthropologist and professor at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Leuven, Belgium). Her research interests are interculturalism, migration and minorities. In 2004, she was awarded the Francqui Prize on Human Sciences for her research on anthropology. Since 2012 she is head of the department of Anthropology of Law at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle (Germany).

She invited Norman Finkelstein, an Hezbollah ally, to the Max Planck institute, what produced a lot of political protest and the Government rebuked the institute.[1] She already invited him when she was at the University of Leuven. Some called her therefore a fan of Finkelstein.[2]
