Starting in August 2020, Ivana Isailović will be joining ACELG as assistant professor of EU law. She will coordinate the 'Principles and Foundations of EU Law' course for master students, and will be teaching in several graduate and undergraduate courses. She will also be part of the 'Sustainable Global Economic Law' interdisciplinary research project.
Ivana was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and grew up in Paris. Her interdisciplinary scholarship sits at the intersection of private international law, EU law, gender studies and critical theory, and examines the interplay between globalization, law, and gender inequalities.
Her research on EU work-life balance measures and neoliberalism is forthcoming in the Yale Journal of International Law, while her work on same-sex marriage reforms and implications for equality was published in the American Journal of Comparative Law, and is forthcoming in the Oxford Encyclopedia of LGBT Politics and Policy. She has also written on how globalization affects family law in the McGill Law Journal, and in edited volumes on transnational and global law published by Cambridge and Oxford University Press.
Ivana is the co-leader of the Gender & Private International Law project at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg, with Prof. Ralf Michaels.
Before joining ACELG, Ivana was a visiting scholar at Northeastern Law School and at the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Northeastern. She taught, among others, at Northeastern University, Northeastern School of Law and MIT. She held appointments at Harvard University (Visiting scholar, Center for European Studies), NYU (Emile Noël Fellow) and McGill Faculty of Law (Boulton Fellow). She has presented her work at Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School, University of Arizona Law, Bocconi Law School, University of Torino, University of Flensburg and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
Ivana holds a PhD from Sciences Po Paris, a Master's degree in International Public Law from Sorbonne University and a degree in Global Business Law and Governance - a joint program between Sorbonne University, Sciences Po Paris, and Columbia Law School.
