Hannah Baumeister

Rights Lab Research Fellow in Forced Marriage and Modern Slavery


Dr Hannah Baumeister (Politics and International Relations) works as part of the Rights Lab's Law and Policy Programme on the AHRC-funded research project “To Have and to Hold: Understanding the Relationship Between Forced Marriage and Modern Slavery” led by Dr Helen McCabe. In this role she is conducting a systematic survey of international, domestic and customary law on forced marriage; building and analysing a database of legislation, norms, and international obligations for all UN Member States; creating accessible legal tools for various stakeholders including model legislation and advice on good practice; and analysing survivor narratives of forced marriage and modern slavery. This work builds on her past research into the international criminalisation of, and socio-legal response to, conflict-related forced marriage.
