CSC Secretariat

On Thursday 06th April 2017, the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK will host presentations and an interactive Q&A session with Commonwealth alumni Dr Sarah Lamble and Dr Natasa Mavronicola. The event will be followed by an informal drinks reception.

Dr Sarah Lamble (2006 Commonwealth Scholar from Canada, PhD Human Rights, Gender and Sexuality, University of Kent) is Head of Criminology at Birkbeck, University of London. Her research interests lie at the intersections of gender, sexuality and criminal justice; social movements and knowledge production; and cultures of violence, control and punishment. She is particularly involved in supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender prisoners in Britain.

Dr Natasa Mavronicola (2010 Commonwealth Scholar from Cyprus, PhD The Boundaries of Human Rights, University of Cambridge) is a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Birmingham. She researches and teaches on human rights, particularly the interplay between counter-terrorism and human rights and on key intersections between human rights and criminal justice. In 2016, Natasa provided expert input to the Commissioner for Human Rights at the Council of Europe and the European Network of National Human Rights Institutes on the role of human rights institutes in protecting human rights in the context of counter-terrorism.

This seminar is free to attend but registration is required to secure your place. Please note that the CSC cannot provide funding for travel/accommodation to attend this seminar.  Please register by emailing
