OxBHR Network Series: Discussion with Dr Ekaterina Aristova
Notes & Changes
The OxBHR Network Series will be hosting its first event of Hilary Term 2023 on Wednesday 25th January, 12:30-1:45pm (GMT). This will take place in-person, in the Gilly Leventis Meeting Room at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, and online via Zoom.
OxBHR are pleased to welcome Dr Ekaterina Aristova from the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights as our speaker for this event. Ekaterina is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights. Her research focuses on access to justice for victims of business-related human rights violations. In 2019-2022, Ekaterina coordinated a project on civil liability for human rights violations led by the Bonavero Institute and funded by the Oak Foundation. Her current project, funded by Leverhulme Trust, explores recent trends and patterns in climate change litigation against corporations.
In 2022, the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights announced the publication of two comparative collections discussing the potential of civil remedies to foster human rights accountability against public bodies and private actors: Ekaterina Aristova and Uglješa Grušic (eds) ‘Civil Remedies and Human Rights in Flux: Key Legal Developments in Selected Jurisdictions’ (Hart Publishing 2022) and Ekaterina Aristova and Catherine O’Regan (eds) ‘Civil Liability for Human Rights Violations: A Handbook for Practitioners’ (Bonavero Institute of Human Rights 2022). Both publications examine how the law of civil remedies operates in relation to modern corporate groups. Dr Ekaterina Aristova will share research findings and discuss recent trends in the parent company and supply chain liability across surveyed jurisdictions.
