A post-doctoral fellow at University College Cork, Clíodhna is working on an Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences project with IntLawGrrl Siobhán Mullally, entitled “Migrant Domestic Workers and EU Migration Law Regimes; exploring the limits of human rights protections”. Siobhán posted about the project yesterday.
Clíodhna completed her doctoral thesis in 2011 in Trinity College Dublin, on the topic of "Integration and the Law: The Irish Experience in its European and International Context”, with the assistance of an Ussher Postgraduate Fellowship. Cliodhna also completed an MLitt thesis in 2006 about complementary protection.
She has lectured on International Human Rights Law at Trinity College Dublin. She has also taught Public International Law to LLM students in the "China-EU School of Law" programme in Beijing and to masters students at Sciences Po in Paris. Clíodhna is also a qualified solicitor.
Clíodhna’s research interests lie mainly in the areas of migration law and international human rights law. She has published in the area of migration law and international law, including in the European Journal of Migration and Law (“The Concept of Integration in the Jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights”). Her most recent publication in the area was in 2011 in the Dublin University Law Journal, entitled "Immigration and Family Life: Family Reunification in Irish Law".
Her introductory post today is the second in a two-part series on migrant domestic workers and EU law. (Part 1, by Siobhán, is here.)
In a further post below, Clíodhna honors Frances Power Cobbe, who was born near Dublin in 1822 and worked as a writer, social reformer, suffragette, and anti-vivisectionist.Today Cobbe joins other inspiring women as an IntLawGrrls foremother.
