Welcome to the new faces of Brighton Business School
We have two new members of teaching staff who have joined the school in December we welcome them to the school and hopefully will meet them in person as soon as is possible.
Chantal is also in the final stages of her PhD. Her research focuses on the concept of human dignity and how it ought to be employed in refugee law. The overarching aim is to show how a dignity-based analysis has the capacity to give refugee law a greater and more just substance. The research undertakes this task through looking at three core areas. These are the philosophy of dignity, discrimination law and refugee law. The refugee limb concentrates upon women who have fled gender harms and relied upon the ‘particular social group category’ within the 1951 Refugee Convention.
Chantal will be teaching Land Law, Human Rights and Public Law.
