Dr Lea Raible
- Lecturer in Public Law (School of Law)
Lea joined the School of Law in September 2019. Previously, she taught at Maastricht University, and the University of Edinburgh. Lea studied law at the Universities of Zürich and Hong Kong and holds a PhD from University College London.
Her monograph 'Human Rights Unbound: A Theory of Extraterritoriality' is forthcoming with Oxford University Press in 2020.
Lea’s research is in the areas of international and constitutional law, as well as their relationship with political philosophy. She is particularly interested in questions concerning the value of territory, political community, and how they interact with human rights. She has written on a range of topics, including the extraterritorial application of human rights, human rights adjudication and participatory democracy, and the theory and practice of referendums.
Lea welcomes PhD proposals in her areas of interest.
