Judy Fudge joined the University of Victoria Faculty of Law in January 2007 as the Lansdowne Chair in Law, after beginning her academic career at Osgoode Hall Law School in 1987. Her research interests are employment and labour law, feminist approaches to law, and the political economy of law. She has been a visiting fellow at the European University Institute, McGill University's Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, the London School of Economics, the University of Melbourne and the University of Oxford, and she has held visiting chairs at the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan. In 2009, she received the Bora Laskin National Fellowship in Human Rights for her research project "Labour Rights as Human Rights: Unions, Women, and Migrants". Judy has been widely published in law, history, and industrial relations journals, and she has co-authored and co-edited several books.
I am interested in equality and human rights claims pertaining to women and migrant workers in particular and the intersection between human rights and labour rights in general. I have researched and published on these topics with respect to Canada, the European Union and international law.
