Dr Andrea Varga

  • Lecturer in International Law (School of Law)

Biography

Andrea Varga is Lecturer in International Law at the University of Glasgow.

She was a Meijers PhD Fellow at Leiden University between 2011 and 2020, where she defended her doctoral dissertation on State Responsibility in the Absence of Effective Government. As part of her PhD research, she spent a semester as a visiting scholar at Columbia University in New York.

Between 2015 and 2018, she worked as a Research Associate at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law within the University of Cambridge on the ESRC-funded Legal Tools for Peace-Making project. As part of her role, she oversaw the development of the award-winning Language of Peace database, created in collaboration with the UN Mediation Support Unit and housing around a thousand peace agreements digitized and categorized according to topic.

She has an MA in International Relations (Corvinus University of Budapest) and an LLM in Public international Law (Leiden University, cum laude).

Research interests

Andrea’s research interests include the law of (state) responsibility and attribution in particular, secessionist entities in international law, rights and obligations of non-state actors, intra-state peace agreements in international law, the interaction between human rights law and general international law, and judicial reasoning at international courts and tribunals – especially the question of how parties’ pleadings influence that reasoning.

She is currently working on research regarding control-based attribution before the regional human rights courts; states’ responses to the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) on this issue; and the duty of non-recognition and validity of legal acts by unrecognized entities under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
