Dr Mando Rahcovitsa holds an Assistant Professorship in International Law at the University of Groningen since August 2016. She read for her PhD at the School of Law, University of Nottingham (UK) on the topic of fragmentation of international law. Upon completion of her PhD thesis, she took up an Assistant Professorship in International Law at Qatar University where she taught international law and human rights (2013-2016).   

She was the Lecturer of the Year (Faculty of Law, University of Groningen, 2017) making her the first woman, international member of staff and non-Dutch speaker to get this award in the Faculty of Law. She was a visiting scholar at Melbourne Law School, Institute for International Law and the Humanities (July 2019). She is a barrister and solicitor (Greece, 2006 - present) (currently non-practicing). Dr Rachovitsa has advised the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, and the Ministry of Interior of Qatar on Internet regulation and policy. She has given expert feedback to the UN Special Rapporteur on Privacy regarding the draft legal instrument on government surveillance and privacy and provided written comments. She is a participant to the Research Group on Human Rights Protocols Considerations (Internet Research Task Force) drafting human rights related guidelines to be considered by the engineering community when creating and updating Internet standards.

Overview of Research

Her research interests lie in the area of public international law and international human rights law. Her research straddles on two main areas. In the first strand of research she explores judicial dispute settlement, including interpretational and jurisdictional issues across international courts and the expertise of judges. The second strand of research addresses the relevance of international law and human rights to Internet regulation. She writes on international transfers of data, and how public interest considerations may inform law-making and the institutional design of Internet global governance bodies.  At the moment she is working on the research project “Making the hidden visible: Co-designing for public values in standards-making and governance” funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO) (March 2020 - March 2024). For more details please see Projects on this webpage.

Sofia Ranchordas conducts research on public law and technology from an interdisciplinary perspective. She is particularly interested in how technology is disrupting traditional legal concepts in administrative law, in particular in the context of local regulation and governance (smart cities). She has published extensively on the regulation of the sharing economy, online platforms, online citizen participation, and online rating and reputational mechanisms.  Her current scholarship can be divided in four strands: 

a) Administrative law and digitalization: smart cities, legal challenges of data-driven regulation and governance; impact of digitalization on the principles of good administration;

b) Regulation of online platforms and social media: in this context, she studies the challenges of regulating the so-called platform economy; the regulatory role of online rating and reputational mechanisms; and the disruptive effect of social media on traditional regulation;

c) Digital democracy;

d) Temporary legislation and  constitutional change: temporary and experimental legislation, free-zones ('regelluwe zones'), legislative entrenchment, sunset and sunrise clause.

Law
Legal scholar with more than twenty years of experience in the international standards protecting health, with a strong emphasis on human rights and health prevention. Currently an important player in the discussion about 'global health law' as an emerging branch of public international law. Recent research themes include the NCD pandemic and the regulation of behavioural risk factors (in particular smoking and unhealty diets), the regulation of vaccination, and the role of law in socio-economic health inequalities.

In 2013, she was awarded a Rosalind Franklin Fellowship at University of Groningen Faculty of Law, which led to her appointment in the Chair Health Law in a Global Context in 2018. She is the initiator of Global Health Law Groningen Research Centre, which hosts around fifteen researchers who focus on various dimensions of health and human rights.

Brigit has published widely in legal, public health and multidisciplinary journals, including Human Rights Quarterly, Harvard Health and Human Rights, the BMJ, and Tobacco Control. She participates in several international and domestic bodies, including as co-chair of the Global Health Law Committee of the International Law Association, as board member of the Dutch Association of Health Law, and as Coordinator of the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health.

With funding from the Dutch Cancer Society/Lung Foundation she conducts research in the field of tobacco control since 2016, looking at tobacco concerns particularly through a human rights lens.  Brigit was member of the Committee on vaccination for childcare (Commissie Vermeij), and acts as a consultant to various international bodies, including the WHO and UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health. More recently, Brigit is engaging with international standard-setting, including regarding the adoption of an international standard protecting healthy diets.
