Elizabeth Mavropoulou - Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies
Elizabeth studied law in Athens (LLB) and trained as solicitor in two law firms in Athens. She is a Greek qualified attorney at law (non-practising). She completed her postgraduate degree in International Law at the University of Westminster (LLM, Distinction). She worked on maritime welfare in the NGO–human rights sector, where her work focused on research, advocacy and publications.
Currently she is legal advisor to Human Rights at Sea, a UK-based charity. She is also a Doctorate Researcher (PhD/MPhil candidate) at the University of Westminster, researching the concept of responsibility-sharing in international refugee law through the prism of the principle of common but differentiated responsibility, for the purposes of understanding its potential as a guiding principle to the Refugee Convention’s implementation. Her general research interests are public international law, international refugee and human rights law, international humanitarian law and the law of the sea. Elizabeth is also greatly interested in the interplay of international law and international relations.
