Jerome Greene Hall, Room 105

Speaker: Shreya Atrey, Associate Professor in International Human Rights Law, Oxford University.

In Intersectional Discrimination, Atrey examines why it has been difficult for jurisdictions around the world to redress intersectional discrimination in law, while exploring what intersectionality is as a theory and as a category of discrimination. Join us for a talk about the book and Atrey's bold vision to reimagine discrimination law from the perspective of intersectionality, examining laws in the US, UK, South Africa, Canada, India, and the jurisprudence of the European Courts and international human rights treaty bodies.

Shreya Atrey is an Associate Professor in International Human Rights Law at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Kellogg College. She is based at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights Law and is an associate member of the Oxford Human Rights Hub.
