In parallel to her academic engagements, she has worked for the United Nations Office at Geneva, the International Law Commission and the Institut Du Droit International.

Research Interests

Yusra Suedi is currently undertaking two research projects: ‘Individuals in Inter-State Proceedings’ and ‘Climate Change Litigation in International Law’. The latter project, commenced at the start of her LSE fellowship, explores the degree to which international courts and tribunals (human rights and other) are equipped to respond to litigation for climate change. The long-term goal of this project is to broaden its scope into examining the legal dimensions of climate justice. More information on both research projects can be read here.
