Personal profile

Research interests

Clair is Associate Professor (Reader) of International Economic Law at the University of Bristol. She is an expert in international trade and issue linkages (gender, human rights, labour standards and sustainable development). Clair is interested in the relationship between power, economics and law – and their interplay in the context of international trade. Much of her work has analysed the complexities of trade relationships between states in the global north and global south. Clair’s research is preoccupied with identifying blindspots in international trade law and exploring how legal, policy and regulatory interventions can contribute to sustainable development at the local and global levels. Her current work focuses on mainstreaming development in international trade agreements, with an emphasis on the way(s) in which trade can lead to, and undermine, the economic empowerment of women.

In addition, Clair has been an advocate for increasing awareness of the socio-cultural implications of the post-Brexit trading arrangements between the UK and EU through academic writing, policy advice and media intveriews. She has experience working as a consultant with government institutions in the UK and she has provided expert evidence before both the UK and EU Parliaments on trade issues. She has also provided commentary on trade-related aspects of Brexit to various media outlets based in the UK and overseas. 

Clair holds degrees in law from the University of Nottingham (LLB & LLM International Law) and the University of Bristol (Socio-Legal Studies MSc & PhD), where she was an ESRC scholar.
