Research interests

Dr. Nadine El-Enany’s research interests include international, UK and EU refugee law, critical human rights law, European Union law, criminal justice and critical legal theory, in particular feminist legal theory, critical race and postcolonial theory.

Nadine is currently involved in a number of research projects. The first examines the historical trajectory of the legal concept of asylum in the United Kingdom and the European Union.

The second project is funded by the CBRL-BRISMES British Academy Research Network Award 2012-13 and seeks to map the emancipatory politics emerging as a result of the Arab uprisings of 2011. In the framework of this project, Nadine’s work examines the limits of law as a tool for activists seeking radical change in revolutionary Egypt.

The third project charts the history of the criminalisation of protest in the UK and seeks to understand the way in which the ideology of criminal justice is deployed by the state as a tool of depoliticisation in order to maintain social order in a time of crisis-induced protest and riot.
