Eglantine Staunton

Research fellow, University of Leeds

I joined POLIS/the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect in January 2017 after completing my PhD at the University of Queensland in 2016. Previously, I completed a MA in International Studies (Peace and Conflict Resolution) at the University of Queensland, after graduating from Sciences Po in France.

In addition to being part of the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect/POLIS, I am also an Honorary Research Fellow at the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect at the University of Queensland (Australia).

My research interests lie broadly in human protection (in particular, humanitarian intervention and the responsibility to protect), France's foreign policy, the EU’s approach to human protection, and International Relations theory (I am particularly interested in constructivism and the study of the interplay between domestic and international norms).
