Dr Henry Lovat

  • Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellow (Law)

Biography

Henry Lovat joined the School of Law as a post-doctoral Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow in 2017. He was formerly a legal adviser with the UK Government and British Business Bank, prior to which he was in private practice as an English-qualified solicitor. Henry has also worked as an international legal consultant with the Council of Europe, various United Nations bodies, and UK and international NGOs.

Henry has degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (PhD, International Relations), University of Toronto (LLM), McGill University (MA Political Science), and the University of Manchester (BA (Hons) Philosophy and Politics).


Research interests

Henry’s interests span International Law and International Relations. His doctoral research examined the political origins of the international treaty rules regulating the conduct of internal armed conflict, using a pluralist theoretical approach to illustrate the interaction of rationalist and social factors in multilateral treaty negotiation outcomes. Other work has examined the efficacy of international tribunals (with a focus on the European Court of Human Rights), and the interplay of legal and political issues in the operation of the International Criminal Court.

Henry’s current research focuses on the politics of international tribunal backlash, investigating the causes of backlash in different institutional and political contexts and identifying measures available to international and domestic actors to ameliorate the risk of backlash. His current project focuses on backlash in the context of the International Criminal Court and the WTO Appellate Body.
