Gloria Gaggioli is Assistant Professor and Grant Holder of Excellence at the University of Geneva.
Her work focuses in particular on issues related to the interplay between international humanitarian law and international human rights law, the right to life and the use of force, including the conduct of hostilities, law enforcement and self-defence.
Prior to joining the University of Geneva, she served as Legal Adviser in the legal division of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and is the author of the ICRC report The Use of Force in Armed Conflicts: Interplay between the Conduct of Hostilities and Law Enforcement Paradigms.
Professor Gaggioli also worked as Visiting Professor at Lille Catholic University, External Lecturer at the University of Copenhagen and Researcher/Teaching Assistant at the Geneva Academy and University of Geneva.
She wrote her PhD thesis (summa cum laude, Pedone 2013) on ‘The Reciprocal Influence between Human Rights Law and Humanitarian Law in the Light of the Right to Life’.
This course focuses on the specific issues that these situations of emergency entail for the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights. In particular, it addresses possible derogations in times of emergency, the applicability of human rights in times of armed conflict and the related but distinct issue of the extraterritorial application of human rights law.
This course focuses on the interplay between international humanitarian law (IHL) and human rights law (HRL). Key issues such as the application of human rights in armed conflicts, the extraterritorial application of HRL and the different theories pertaining to the interplay between IHL and HRL, including in particular the lex specialis maxim, are addressed.
