Amy Strecker wins Breed Grant to work on Property and Spatial Justice in International Law
Dr Amy Strecker has recently been awarded a LGI BREED grant to develop her project on property and spatial justice in international law. Building on her previous research into landscape protection from cultural heritage, environmental and human rights perspectives, Amy will combine legal analysis with perspectives from cultural geography to scrutinize the use and abuse of property rights in international law.
Amy Strecker's project will not only examine the international human rights, cultural heritage and environmental law frameworks, but also specific areas of international economic law, including foreign direct investment, that converge and diverge with spatial justice in the realm of land-based projects and policies. Lastly, the research project will also include a strong conceptual component, by reconsidering the concept, definition and interpretation of property in people-place relations.
With the grant, Amy Strecker is working on developing her project into an ERC starting grant proposal in autumn 2018. She is grateful to Leiden Global Interactions for giving her the time to work on her project.
