Gender Equality Rapporteur
Lecturer in Law at the University of Strathclyde

Dr Birgit Schippers is Gender Equality Rapporteur of the Global Digital Human Rights Network.
She is Lecturer in Law at the University of Strathclyde, where she works at the intersection of human rights law and technology law. Her research expertise centres on new and emerging technologies, particularly artificial intelligence and its impact on human rights and democracy. Current projects examine the legal and ethical regulation of artificial intelligence; the human rights compliance of biometric technologies; and online disinformation and democratic harms. She has also written on the ethics and politics of autonomous weapons systems and on civilian and military uses of drones. Dr Schippers has longer-standing interests in critical political theory, especially gender and feminist theory. She is the author of Julia Kristeva and Feminist Thought (EUP 2011) and The Political Philosophy of Judith Butler (Routledge 2014), and editor of Critical Perspectives on Human Rights (RLI 2018) and The Routledge Handbook to Rethinking Ethics in International Relations (Routledge 2020).
