About Associate Professor Jacqui Mowbray

I am interested in international law and human rights, and my research uses legal and social theory to gain a deeper understanding of how these fields of law operate. I am particularly interested in the position of marginalised and disadvantaged groups under international law. My research currently focuses on the position of linguistic minorities, and considers the way in which international law influences language policy and language use.
