CORTH experiences

Transitional Justice, Gender and Reproduction NarrativesLiiri Oja
PhD Candidate in Law, European University Institute

I spent the autumn semester of 2017/2018 at CORTH as a visiting early career researcher funded by the European University Institute. My PhD thesis explores power and gender narratives in transnational reproduction jurisprudence. I was looking for a setting where I could do more than just use the library and attend some seminars, but to actually engage actively with the university's research community, introduce my work to different audiences, and learn new ways of thinking about human rights and reproduction. CORTH exceeded all my expectations. I presented my ongoing research several times, helped out with developing CORTH's online presence as a forum for connecting scholars around the world, organised a research workshop, and had endless inspiring discussions about my work with CORTH members. I cannot thank Maya Unnithan and Maria Moscati enough for having me, being so generous with their time, and getting me involved from day one!
