Alice Margaria

Alice Margaria is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich and member of the URPP Human Reproduction Reloaded. Before her appointment at UZH, she was a Senior Researcher at the Law and Anthropology Department of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle (Germany). She holds a PhD in Law from the European University Institute. Her scholarship lies at the intersections of diversity, human rights and family law, with a particular focus on the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. She is the author of The Construction of Fatherhood: The Jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (Cambridge University Press, 2019). Alice’s recent research integrates law and anthropology both methodologically and conceptually: she empirically reconstructs case-law by giving voice to those involved, making space for their narratives and experiences, and documenting the impact of litigation on contemporary families. Alice is also the convenor of the judicial study visit "Diversity in the Courtroom” which takes place every year (since 2021) at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, in collaboration with the European Judicial Training Network.
