Miss Asteropi Chatzinikola
Asteropi joined the Cardiff School of Law and Politics as a doctoral researcher in 2021, after her LLB studies. Her research interests include international human rights law, health, and child rights, with a particular focus on participation and the emerging trends of global climate change litigation. She is currently working on her PhD thesis entitled 'Climate Change and Child Health: Participation, Rhetoric and Human Rights' funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) - South, West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (awarded in 2022 ).
Asteropi's work combines legal doctrinal analysis, political philosophy, and rhetorical criticism. She holds an LLB (Hons; first-class) from Queen Mary University of London and a BA in Classics and Philology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. During her law studies, she was awarded the Senior Status Scholarship, the QM Research Bursary, and two prizes of outstanding academic achievement (Oxford University Press Prize for Equity and Trusts, UK Human Rights Law Prize) for the highest performance at the School of Law in her year. She has been conducting comparative research for international organisations, researchers, and practising lawyers on disciplines of broader interest, including vaccine distribution and health equity, immigration, family, maritime, international trade, and insurance, for submissions to top-tier law journals. She is a data visualisation enthusiast looking for the point where data, law, and philosophy meet.
