Cathryn’s appointment is in association with the Faculty of Law and comes with a Fellowship at St Antony’s College. The RSC has been fundraising for this post for the past 10 years and we are very grateful to our many supporters who ‘matched’ the endowment of the Andrew W Mellon Foundation to create this permanent post – our fourth permanent academic post in support of the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies.

Cathryn comes to us from Worcester College, where she has been a Fellow and Tutor in EU and Public Law for the past 10 years. She began her academic career in 1998 as Lecturer in European Law at the Law School, Trinity College Dublin, and from 2000-2003, she also held the position of Director of the Irish Centre for European Law. Cathryn has published widely on many aspects of EU and human rights law, including asylum and refugee law, immigration, EU Citizenship and third country national family members, family reunification and immigration detention.
