Amelia Susserott

Research Assistant

I have a multidisciplinary background, spanning politics and international law. My research interests lie primarily in contemporary threats to human rights, forced displacement and refugee law, and international humanitarian law. I have experience working as a researcher within multiple Higher Education institutions, with a primary focus on human rights and mass atrocities. I am also currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at Lancaster University, where my thesis research focuses on redefining the principle of non-refoulement under international refugee law.

At the University of Exeter, I am supporting Dr Sandra Kröger’s European Network funded project on Regulating Digital Democracy. This research project explores the challenges of regulating digital democracy – from the difficulties of establishing digital sovereignty, to balancing censorship with civil liberties – and how digital technologies should be regulated in line with democratic principles.
