Dr. Lourdes Peroni LLM, PhD

Senior Lecturer in Law


I am Lecturer in Human Rights at the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice at Sheffield Hallam University. Before joining SHU, I held positions at the Human Rights Centre of Ghent University (Postdoctoral Research Fellow), at Yale Law School (Fellow) and at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (Fellow). My areas of teaching and research include equality and non-discrimination; gender and migration; gender-based violence against women; women’s rights in cities; and feminist legal theory in the contexts of the United Nations, Council of Europe, and Organisation of American States. I have published among others in Feminist Legal Studies, International Journal of Constitutional Law – I•CON and Human Rights Law Review. My most recent publications include “The Protection of Women Asylum Seekers under the European Convention on Human Rights: Unearthing the Gendered Roots of Harm” (Human Rights Law Review) and “The Borders that Disadvantage Migrant Women in Enjoying Human Rights” (Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights). I have held visiting research positions at Emory Law School (The Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative) and at Melbourne Law School (The Institute of International Law and Humanities). In 2015, I was the drafter and co-author of a third-party intervention submitted on behalf of Ghent University’s Human Rights Centre to the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in a high-profile migration case: Paposhvili v Belgium.
