Dr Ekaterina (Katya) Aristova is a Research Fellow at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights (Faculty of Law, University of Oxford). Her research interests are in the field of business and human rights with a particular focus on strategic human rights and environmental litigation. Ekaterina examines how conventional private law doctrines evolve in response to global challenges and are used creatively in different jurisdictions to foster human rights and environmental accountability. Ekaterina is a co-editor of ‘Civil Remedies and Human Rights in Flux’ (Hart Publishing 2022) and ‘Civil Liability for Human Rights Violations: A Handbook for Practitioners’ (Bonavero Institute of Human Rights 2022). She is also an author of a forthcoming book, ‘Tort Litigation against Transnational Corporations in the English Courts: The Challenge of Jurisdiction’ (OUP 2024), a revised manuscript of a PhD thesis completed at the University of Cambridge. In 2022, Ekaterina was awarded a prestigious Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to complete a project on climate change litigation against corporations.



About Oxford Business and Human Rights Network & Discussion Group

The Oxford Business and Human Rights Network (OxBHR) aims to provide a forum for critical and interdisciplinary debate on issues of business and human rights. We seek to bring together academics, civil society, businesses, and practitioners for the discussion of corporate accountability for human rights violations. We have organised events that have inter alia addressed important debates on corporate complicity in human rights violations; access to remedy for victims of business-related abuses; developments and challenges in the implementation of corporate respect for human rights; regulatory developments around the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the development of a binding treaty; emerging trend towards human rights due diligence; multi-stakeholder initiatives, disclosure and reporting mechanisms; and developments in (strategic) litigation against corporate (human rights) abuse. We aim to welcome theoretical, doctrinal, empirical, and policy-oriented contributions from all relevant disciplines, covering business and human rights issues across the world and industries. The OxBHR organises public events as well as invite-only meetings to discuss work in progress, draft papers, and grant proposals.

Ayako Hatano is the convenor of the Oxford Business and Human Rights Network & Discussion Group in the 2023/24 academic year. Professor Kate O’Regan is the academic supervisor of the OxBHR.
