Dr Giedre Jokubauskaite

Post-doctoral Research Associate

Dr Giedre Jokubauskaite is a Post-doctoral Research Associate at Durham Law School. She is also a Fellow at the Durham's Global Policy Institute. She defended her thesis entitled 'Accountability towards individuals and communities affected by the World Bank development interventions: the project law approach' at the University of Edinburgh in early 2016. Giedre's current research focuses on the role of (international) law in sustainable development, and in particular the intersection between economic, social, political and environmental concerns in lawmaking as well as in legal disputes. She is also interested in the issues of normativity, and specifically the distinction between legal and other (political, economic, moral) normative orders. Prior to joining academia in the United Kingdom, Giedre worked as a civil society advocate in Lithuania, Ukraine, Cameroon and Germany, focusing on the issues of participation, transparency and accountability in public governance.
