Maja Janmyr er professor i internasjonal migrasjonsrett ved Det juridiske fakultet, Universitetet i Oslo. Hennes forskning fokuserer særlig på flyktningers rettigheter og levekår i Midtøsten. De siste årene har hun studert situasjonen for syriske flyktninger i Libanon, og nubisk rettighetsmobilisering i Egypt. Janmyr har sin doktorgrad i folkerett fra universitetet i Bergen, der hun med utgangspunkt i feltarbeid i Uganda fokuserte på menneskerettsansvaret til FNs flyktningorgan UNHCR.
