The Contributors

Dr Riccardo Baldissone is Visiting Fellow at the Department of Politics and International Relations at Goldsmiths, University of London. He has reconsidered human rights discourse within modern theoretical frameworks: furthering his genealogical commitment, his current research spans the Greek construction of the logic of identity, the evolution of the logic of analogy in Roman law, the medieval emergence of conceptual discourse, and the transformations of modern naturalism. He is also a fellow of the Law and Theory Lab, University of Westminster.

Dr Stacy Douglas is Assistant Professor, Law and Legal Studies, University of Carleton, Canada. Her interest in law and legal studies is fuelled by broad questions about theories of democracy, the role of the state, the relationship between government and governed, and processes of decolonisation. She approaches these questions through empirical research as well as political and legal theory, especially that which intersects with poststructural, feminist, queer, and critical race traditions.
