Biography

Lucia Kula is an International Human Rights Lawyer and Lecturer in Law and Gender. Her research focuses on an interdisciplinary study of international law, forced migration and gendered violence through an auto-ethnographic lens. With a background in EU law and human rights law, her interest in the language and the epistemology of legal scholarship weaves together the lived experiences of those in liminal spaces of belonging such as borders and borderlands. Through an interrogation of feminist legal scholarship, she examines how legal theory understands (il)legality and (im)mobility, and how conflict and violence affects displaced bodies through the multidimensional continuum of cross-border migration.
