Dr Lisa Mardikian
Senior Lecturer in Property Law


Lisa joined Brunel Law School as Lecturer in June 2019. Prior to coming to Brunel, she was Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth and Teaching Assistant at the University of Bristol. Her research interests lie on economic rights under international and European Union law and on the role that law plays in structuring economic relations. Her work focuses on the intersection of global governance, European integration and international law. Lisa obtained her PhD without corrections on 'Transformations in the Law of Economic Self-determination: a Global Governance Perspective' from the University of Bristol. Her research examined how major changes in international law and forms of transnational economic activity have had an impact on the content and function of economic self-determination following the end of the Cold War. 

In 2021, Lisa was a visiting research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg. She has been a visiting lecturer at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Panteion University in Athens.
