Profile

Biography

Dr Xavier Aurey is a lecturer in French Public Law and International Human Rights Law. After being awarded a PhD in International Law in September 2015 (University Pantheon-Assas Paris 2, France PhD prize from the University 2016), Xavier spent a year on a post-doctoral position at the University of Angers (France) to study gender discriminations in a comparative constitutional law approach. In his PhD dissertation, he has questioned the capacity of the traditional human rights framework to protect individuals from exploitation in the biomedical field. He has demonstrated that, in the biomedical economy, when there is a lack of transparency and unjust collective benefits sharing, the implementation of universal principles such as dignity and autonomy is never sufficient to protect the most vulnerable from exploitation. Since 2006, Xavier has been involved in teaching French Public Law, International and European Human Rights Law, and French Public Liberties at the University of Caen Normandie (France). Realizing that French law students can greatly benefit from Clinical Legal Education, he established in 2009 the first French law clinic focused on human rights and has developed since 2013 a Francophone network for clinical legal education (http://www.cliniques-juridiques.org). As an international consultant, he worked in January 2017 for the OSCE on an access to justice programme to develop a law clinic in Mitrovice, Kosovo.
