Lynsey Mitchell

Dr Lynsey Mitchell is a lecturer at the University of Strathclyde.
My research straddles international human rights law, women’s rights, reproductive rights, feminist legal theory, and law and literature. I have published in leading journals on the
narrativisation of women’s rights in literature and on how reproductive rights are often premised on the problematic reproduction of one-dimensional understandings of womanhood.

 I am currently working on a funded pilot project exploring how reproductive rights are understood within the wider human rights project.

I am a founding member of the Gender Justice and International Law Research Network, which works to bring together critical scholars of international law in order to promote gender justice. 

I sit on the Executive Committee of the LEX (Law, Gender and Sexuality) Research Network and am the review editor for the Gender, Justice and Social
Transformation journal. 

I am also an Executive Committee member of Abortion Rights and Abortion Rights Scotland.
