Dr Iyiola Solanke
I joined Leeds Law School in 2010. I was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the University of Michigan and a Visiting Professor at Wake Forest University Law School. I am currently a Visiting Fellow at the European Institute, LSE.
Scholarly and Research Interests
My research interests fall in the fields of EU integration and racial integration. I write on anti-discrimination law, intersectionality, the EU judiciary and EU governance. My work is both empirical and socio-legal. Previous research projects have focused on the interaction between social action and legal reform; cause lawyering; and black and migrant women in European welfare states.
I am the module leader for the LLM Unit on European Internal Market and Competition Law. In 2011 I plan to run an LLM module on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
I also contribute to the LLB course: EU Law, Discrimination Law.
I would be happy to consider potential PhD proposals in the fields of: Discrimination Law; EU Courts and Judiciary; Welfare in the EU; aspects of the Internal Market and Competition Law.
