Human Rights, Family & Gender

Recent Posts

Our Programme

The Think Tank on Human Rights, Family and Gender seeks to highlight the complexities of human rights from an interdisciplinary perspective that recognizes the interconnectivity of global issues surrounding family and gender. By taking an interdisciplinary approach, we aim to work collaboratively alongside activists, policymakers, researchers, artists, and academics in the field to come up with creative solutions to current injustices.  Our Think Tank aims to act as a platform to highlight key challenges faced in the implementation of human rights globally, in particular as they impact and intersect with issues of gender and family. Moreover, our goal is to provide policy recommendations based on our common research interests and global network.

Anastasia Tataryn

Fellow

I joined the Faculty at St Jerome’s University of Waterloo in January 2020. Previously, I was a Lecturer in Law at the University of Liverpool, from 2015-2020. I have also held positions at the School of Law Birkbeck College, University of London and the Warwick Law School, University of Warwick.

My interest in law and legal studies starts from questions of how law, and its limits, are constructed. My research interrogates the limits of legal frameworks by deeply questioning the foundations, and categories, of modern law and legal subjectivity. My research draws on de coloniality and anarchist thought, feminist theories, indigenous research methodologies and post-structuralist approaches to law. Forthcoming publication in the summer 2020: Law, Migration and Precarious Labour: Ecotechnics of the Social, Routledge.

I hold a PhD in Law from the School of Law Birkbeck College, University of London. My LLM was completed at Osgoode Hall Law School. Additionally, I hold an MA in History from York University, Canada and a BA (Hons) from the University of Saskatchewan.
