Provisional title: 'The gap in the legal protection of children's environmental health'


Professor Malgosia Fitzmaurice and Jessie Hohmann

Summary of Research 

Her current research examines the role of environmental impact assessment as a tool for the protection of children’s health from environmental threats, in a legal context, with a primary focus on the European Union.

An increasing number of diseases in children have been recognised by the WHO and other organisations, as being linked to environmental exposures. Moreover, recently, there has been a developing awareness of the importance of environmental impact assessment in protecting human health from environmental threats. Therefore, it is an important area of research and one that is hoped to contribute to the academic literature in the field and also assist policy makers to integrate children’s health in the EIA process.


Angeliki started her PhD in September 2014 and has been a teaching associate/guest lecturer in international environmental law and tutor in international human rights law both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. She received her LLB from University College London in 2003, an LLM from University College London in 2004 in Public International Law and Human Rights and an LLM from Queen Mary University of London in International Environmental Law and Human Rights.

In 2008, Angeliki became an advocate, member of the Athens Bar Association and has practiced in Athens, Greece in the areas of land law, administrative law and employment law. She has also worked for the Greek Council for Refugees and the UNHCR office in Athens Greece. In 2015 she was awarded the Modern Law Review scholarship.
