Dr Claire Fenton-Glynn

Lecturer, Faculty of Law


I am currently a Lecturer at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge, where my research lies in the field of human rights and the protection of children. I have published on a wide range of issues including intercountry adoption, international surrogacy, and cross-border child protection, as well as children's rights under the European Court of Human Rights. I have worked with organisations such as United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the European Union, Save the Children, and Avocats Sans Frontieres on issues concerning child protection, human rights, and rule of law.

Research Interests

My work focuses on the cross-border movement of children, particularly as they relate to family formation and dissolution. In this context, I have written on intercountry adoption, international surrogacy, and international parental child abduction. I have also looked at issues concerning child trafficking, and cross-border child exploitation.
