Professor Anna Grear
Anna’s work calls on insights from a range of disciplines despite being firmly located within a combination of critical legal theory and jurisprudence. She has a particular interest in the relationship between human rights and the environment, and in the theme of legal subjectivity, locating these in relation to contemporary globalisation and to a central concern with the implications of the materiality of the living order – including the theme of lived embodiment.
Anna is the founder and editor in chief of the Journal of Human Rights and the Environment, and is founder and director of the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment (GNHRE) – now the largest existing international network of leading scholars in the field, activists, policy makers, lawyers and NGOs dedicated to the transformation of thinking concerning the relationship between human rights and the environment.
Anna is also Adjunct Associate Professor of Law at the University of Waikato, New Zealand; Invited Professor at the Westminster Centre for Law and Theory; Global Affiliate to the Vulnerability and Human Condition Collaboration, Emory University USA and Dahrendorf Visiting Fellow 2013, Grantham Research Institute, LSE.
Anna welcomes applications for doctoral supervision for any subject within her research interests, especially in human rights theory, human rights and the environment, legal personhood and rights theory generally.
