Kristin Henrard is Professor of Fundamental Rights and Minorities at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam as well as Associate Professor of International and European law. She teaches courses on advanced public international law, international criminal law, human rights, and on minorities and fundamental rights. In 2005-2010 she was member of The Young Academy of the Dutch Academy of Science. Kristin has held visiting fellowships at the Max Planck Institute on Ethnic and Religious Diversity (Göttingen, Germany); the Centre d'Etudes Ethniques des Universités Montréaloises (Québec, Canada) and African Centre for Migration and Society (Wits University, Johannesburg, South Africa). Her main publications pertain to the areas of human rights and minorities, ranging from educational rights, linguistic rights, to the prohibition of (racial) discrimination, socio-economic and political participation and religious fundamental rights. The past few years she has also worked on the intersection of fundamental rights, on the one hand, and social and philosophical approaches to integration (dilemmas), on the other. More recently she is working on 'vulnerability' as marker in human rights monitoring, and also on 'nationality'.
