Dr Sara Razai


Dr. Sara Razai joined BIICL in 2002. Sara is the International Projects Lead and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Comparative Law. Holding a PhD in Law from University College London, Sara specialises in empirical legal research with findings informing policy-making at national and international levels.

Current research projects include a UKRI funded project  in cooperation with Kyoto University to investigate the new legal issues arising from the pandemic with a focus on the protection of vulnerable groups and the impact of law and judges in regions with complex historical backgrounds, including colonial legacies, struggles for independence, and socio-economic marginalisation.

In addition to her research role, Sara works to enhance BIICL's global outreach, particularly focusing on regions in the Global South. She also teaches at various universities such as Sciences Politiques, where she teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses on International law & Development, Negotiation & Advocacy and Law, Politics, and Colonialism in the Global South.
