Clarisse Anceau is a PhD candidate at Sciences Po Law School working on a feminist approach to the right of peoples to self-determination. Drawing on critical feminist legal theories, she examines the intersection between national and individual self-determination by looking at case studies in North Africa and the Middle-East. She is conducting her research under the supervision of Pr. Jean d’Aspremont. Clarisse has completed a LL.M. and a Master degree in European and international law at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Her first master thesis questioned the permissibility under international law of the French military intervention in Mali, while the second retraced the evolution of the concept of just war in European and Islamic legal discourses. She previously graduated in law from Panthéon-Assas University. Before joining Sciences Po, Clarisse worked with the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court. She has also assisted in the teaching of a lecture on “a human-rights based approach to the protection of the environment in times of peace and conflict” at the European University Viadrina (Frankfurt/Oder).
