University College Dublin Sutherland School of Law – Dr Maebh Harding
Assistant Professor in Family and Child Law at UCD will lead the project. Her research combines a critical feminist perspective with empirical, historical and doctrinal rigour to challenge legal regulation of family life. She takes particular interest, not only in law and gender, but in how family justice systems actually work. Her work has been widely cited and has significantly impacted policy and practice.

Fiona de Londras
Professor Fiona de Londras, Chair of Global Legal Studies
Professor De Londras’ research concerns constitutionalism, human rights, and transnationalism. She is particularly interested in the role and function of rights in contentious policy fields, inquiring into how (if at all) rights shape the making of law and policy in complex contexts of, for example, counter-terrorism, reproductive rights, government and parliamentary responses to COVID-19, and the implementation of international legal standards.
