About Eva-Maria Svensson

Professor, LLD, LLM in Law, Department of Law, School of Business, Economics and Law, and Director for Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Research (GIG), University of Gothenburg, Sweden

My research is mainly concentrated on legal philosophy and theory, particularly in the field feminist/gender legal studies, gender equality law and policy, and freedom of speech. I also do research in the field STS (Studies of science and technology) and more specifically Studies of Academic Knowledge in Law. I also do research in the field of ageing and age capability, gender equality in the Arctic as well as indigenous issues .

I participate in several research networks, in jurisprudence, feminist/gender studies, socio-legal studies, critical legal studies, free speech issues, such as the international network on Gender Equality in the Arctic TUARQ, the Nordic Network in Women’s Law and Feminist/Gender Legal Studies, several International Network in Feminist and Feminist Legal Studies, Critical legal scholars, NORSIL (the Nordic Research Network for Sámi and Indigenous People's Law), and the International Association for Legal Philosophy and Social Philosophy (IVR).

Up to 2017 I have supervised eight LLD students to dissertation, and for the moment (2017) I am supervisor for two LLD students . I teach master students as well as PhD and LLD students in legal theories and methods, feminist legal studies, discrimination and gender equality.

Senior leader for the research group in jurisprudence at the Department of Law.
