Sara Seck, PhD, joined the Faculty of Law, Western University, as an assistant professor in July 2007. Her PhD research concerns home state obligations to regulate transnational mining companies under international environmental and human rights law (Osgoode Hall Law School, 2008). Sara’s research interests include corporate social responsibility, international environmental, human rights, and sustainable development law, climate change, and indigenous law. She is particularly interested in international and transnational legal theory, notably the relationship between Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL) and international legal process theories that are informed by constructivist understandings of international relations. Her research has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, including research focused upon the UN Protect, Respect, Remedy Framework, and Guiding Principles, for Business and Human Rights. Sara welcomes expressions of interest from graduate students working in these areas.
