Paul McDonough

Lecturer in Law

School of Law and Politics

Overview

Since February of 2020, I have been a lecturer in law at Cardiff University, where I teach contract and EU law. My main research area is international and comparative law, often related to human rights. Particular interests include Islamic law, refugee law, EU fundamental rights law and constitutionalism.

I hold a JD from the University of Michigan and a PhD in law from Trinity College, Dublin. In between, I worked for the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (Brussels), the Max Planck Institute for international and comparative law (Heidelberg) and UNHCR (Valletta). Following my PhD I completed a Max Weber postdoctoral fellowship at the European University Institute, where I am a visiting researcher in 2020-21.
