Research interests

Meghan Campbell pursues several harmonious strands of research. Her research investigates how the normative content and accountability mechanisms of human rights can break entrenched cycles of gender disadvantage. At the same time, she has been active, particularly on digital platforms, in examining how human rights and courts can positively contribute to realizing education for all learners.
