Dr Claire Lougarre is Lecturer in Human Rights Law within Southampton Law School at the University of Southampton.

Claire joined the Law School in September 2014. She holds degrees in (French) Law (LLB) and International Human Rights Law (LLM). She also holds a PhD in Law and wrote her thesis on 'The Right to Health: Legal Content through Supranational Monitoring' Before joining Southampton Law School, Claire worked as a Teaching Fellow in University College London, King’s College London, and National University of Ireland, Galway.

She is now involved in various research networks, including the Academic Network on the European Social Charter (ANESC/RACSE), and the Economic and Social Rights Academic Network UK and Ireland (ESRAN-UKI). She researches on health and human rights issues, as well as on economic social and cultural rights more widely.





Research interests

Her current research focuses on the legal content of the right to health. By comparing how the right to health is monitored in the United Nations and in the Council of Europe, Claire examines how supranational human rights bodies may contribute to clarifying it. This project analyses what the right to health entails and should entail in supranational monitoring, in order to assist key actors in its realisation.

Further research interests include the protection of non-nationals in international human rights law, as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights.
