Sophia is a doctoral student at University College London. She holds an LLM as well as an MA in Conflict Resolution in Divided Societies from King’s College London, a Maîtrise en Droit in International Law from Panthéon-Assas University/Paris II, and the German First State Examination (Humboldt University of Berlin).
Her research focuses on the role of domestic courts in consociational systems of power-sharing and involves data collection through interviewing in Northern Ireland and Lebanon. She seeks to understand how courts react to consociations and the implications of their judgments for the broader political set-up.
