Biography

Giedre joined the School of Law at the University of Glasgow in September 2018. Prior to this, she was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate on the AHRC-funded project 'Constructing Authority in International Law' at Durham Law School. She completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh in 2016. Before joining academia in the UK, she worked as a civil society advocate in Lithuania, Ukraine, Cameroon and Germany.

Her monograph ‘Law and accountability towards people affected by development projects’ will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2020. Her current research focuses on the link between international law and sustainable development.  


Research interests

Giedre’s most recent research has been on the concept of ‘affectedness’, and how this new paradigm of global governance is used by financial institutions and grassroot organisations in the context of development interventions. She has a few ongoing research projects that explore the possibility of stakeholder engagement through mediation, the authority of law in negotiating development projects, and the link between land rights and environmental impact assessment. Giedre is also interested in the issues of normativity, and specifically the distinction between legal and other (political, economic, moral) normative orders.

Supervision

I would be happy to supervise PhD researchers in any area of public international law, and global governance more generally. I would be particularly interested in those projects that explore the theoretical underpinnings of international and/or transnational law; the emergence of global governance and/or corresponding local resistance strategies; the negotiation, regulation and implementation of international agreements (especially investor-state contracts); and also any other topics that engage with relationship between environment, development and investment from a legal perspective.
