Nicole De Silva

I am the inaugural IKEA Research Fellow in International Relations at Lady Margaret Hall and the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford. In Fall 2017, I also will be a Visiting Researcher at WZB Berlin Social Science Center’s Global Governance Research Unit. Starting in January 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Concordia University in Montreal. I hold a Bachelor of Social Sciences from the University of Ottawa, and MPhil and DPhil degrees in International Relations from the University of Oxford.

My interdisciplinary research combines international relations and international law to address questions broadly relating to international cooperation, and regional and global governance. I am currently focusing on the politics of international courts. For this research, I have received awards from the International Studies Association-International Organization Section (2014), British International Studies Association (2016), and the International Studies Association-Human Rights Section (2016-17).
