Biography

Matthew Saul is an international lawyer with particular expertise in general international law, international human rights law, and international adjudication. He is a researcher at PluriCourts - Centre for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order.

 

Matthew’s research often deals with themes that sit at the intersection between international law and politics. Presently, he is using qualitative and quantitative research methods to focus on the interaction between the European Court of Human Rights and national parliaments. His edited volume (with Follesdal and Ulfstein), The International Human Rights Judiciary and National Parliaments: Europe and Beyond, CUP 2017, was included by the Editor-in-Chief of the EJIL in his top ten list of good reads from 2017. His article on the European Court of Human Right's Margin of Appreciation and the Processes of National Parliaments was published in the Human Rights Law Review (OUP) in 2015. His follow up article was published by the International Journal of Human Rights in 2016.

 

Matthew also works on the interplay between post-conflict reconstruction policy and international law. He published an edited volume (with Sweeney) on International Law and Post-Conflict Reconstruction Policy (Routledge, 2015) (see review in the ICLQ, blog symposium at International Law Observer). His monograph on Popular Governance of Post-Conflict Reconstruction was published by Cambridge University Press in 2014 (see review in New York University Journal of International Law and Politics). His working paper on International Law and the Legitimacy of Interim Governments was published as part of the ESIL SSRN Conference Paper Series. He is the co-editor of the Routledge book series Post-Conflict Law and Justice.

 

Prior to moving to Oslo to work on the European Research Council funded project, MultiRights, Matthew was a lecturer at Durham University, UK (2008 – 2013). At Durham, he developed and taught on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, including public international law, international investment law, European Union Constitutional Law, intellectual property law, and research methods. Matthew successfully defended his PhD on the topic of international law and post-conflict reconstruction (supervised by Prof. Nigel D. White) at the University of Sheffield in 2009.
