Dr Shazia Choudhry
My research interests lie in the fields of European and UK human rights law and in particular the interface of those fields with substantive areas of family law. Particular areas of interest include the impact of the HRA and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) on forced marriage and honour based violence, violence against women as a human rights issue and the effect of rights-based reasoning in the law relating to children. My work with Professor Herring at Oxford has, in particular, been recognised as representing the first detailed application of the principles of the European Convention on Human Rights to the issue of domestic violence and took place prior to the first such application of the Convention in this area by the European Court of Human Rights in Opuz v Turkey (2009).
