LILIIA KHASANOVA, Ph.D

International law - Negotiations - Peace building


Hello and Welcome!

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Kolleg-Forschungsgruppe "The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline?" based at the Freie University Berlin, Germany. The research group examines the role of international law in the changing global order, and I am delighted to work on a project which tackles this question from the standpoint of international law of cyberspace.

My research in general has always been devoted to various facets of negotiations: from legal aspects to humanitarian impact.

A holistic approach towards research questions is crucial for me to produce practically oriented research. Aiming for empirically based, statistically proven data, I was lucky to conduct different parts of my doctoral and post-doctoral research in leading institutions around the world (USA, Switzerland, Sweden). Learn more about my international research experience here.

The results of my research on negotiating disputes in the WTO were published in English and Russian. I also devoted some part of my research to Gender in international negotiations & 1325 Women, Peace and Security Agenda. Learn more about my research here.

I graduated with my Ph.D. in International Public law from Kazan Federal University, where I also had teaching practice in a wide range of courses, including International Public Law, History of International Law, European System of Human Rights. I enjoy teaching in formal and non-formal settings. Take a look at my teaching portfolio here.

Last, but not least, I enjoy working and volunteering with local and international peace-building initiatives. I am in the Executive Committee of a youth-lead NGO "A Common World Among the Youth" (ACWAY). Check out more about ACWAY and my other peace building work here.
