About me

Dr Squatrito is an Associate Professor in International Organisations in the Department of International Relations at LSE. 

She teaches international organisations and international institutions, and the politics of international human rights at LSE.

Her research focuses on international organisations (IOs) and international law. Through the comparative study of international institutions, she contributes to debates on the institutional design, performance, and legitimacy of IOs and international courts (ICs). Currently, her research examines how the institutional design of ICs shapes judicial decision-making as well as the legitimacy of international courts.

Dr Squatrito received her PhD from the University of Washington, Seattle in Political Science. Previously she has held postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Oslo, PluriCourts Center and Stockholm University on the Transdemos research programme.
