Dr. Lourdes Peroni LLM, PhD
Senior Lecturer in Human Rights at the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice at Sheffield Hallam University.
I am Senior 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; 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 Johanna Niemi, Lourdes Peroni and Vladislava Stoyanova (eds.), INTERNATIONAL LAW AND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN: EUROPE AND THE ISTANBUL CONVENTION (Routledge 2020) and Eva Brems, Lourdes Peroni and Ellen Desmet (eds.), Special Issue “Migration, Gendered Borders and Human Rights,” 37(4) Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights (2019). 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). 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. Together with SHU colleagues, Matthew Sands and Thomas Bundschuh, I co-authored submissions on behalf of the Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice to the CEDAW Committee in response to calls for contributions and comments on the Draft General Recommendation on Trafficking of Women and Girls in the Context of Global Migration.
