Dr. Atina Krajewska


Back to staff list

Atina joined the Sheffield Law School in September 2015. Prior to that she spent four years at the Cardiff School of Law and Politics and three years at the University of Exeter where she taught Medical Law, EU law, and Tort Law.

In her research she focuses on the developments of human rights law in the area of health and biomedicine. Underpinning her research is the attempt to investigate the question of how the international community should manage health challenges and scientific progress. Her current research includes three main strands. The first strand is a continuation of research in the area of privacy, informational autonomy and data protection law in Europe in the context of genetic and genomic science. This work has been noted by the Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education and the Polish Senate. The second strand extend sher studies into the field of reproductive rights, in which Atina is currently developing a project on the access of single persons to fertility treatment. The third strand of her research focuses on the formation of Global Health Law as a rising system of transnational law. It elaborates on increasingly prominent debates regarding post-traditional patterns of constitutional organization and global justice and bears diversely on distinct legal spheres of medical and public health law, public international law, and the sociology of law.
