International Advisory Board

Debra Long, Research Fellow and Co-Deputy Director, Human Rights Implementation Centre, University of Bristol Law School, 8-10 Berkeley Square, Bristol BS8 1HH. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Debra Long is the Co-Deputy Director and Research Fellow of the Human Rights Implementation Centre of the University of Bristol Law School (HRIC). She is a UK qualified lawyer who has specialised in the rights of persons deprived of their liberty. Her research has sought to identify and better understand factors that influence the implementation of human rights standards in practice. Through this work Debra has examined the effective functioning of oversight bodies and domestic processes for the prevention of torture and has sought to answer key questions such as how do oversight bodies prevent torture and how can their functional independence be achieved in practice? Debra’s most recent work has been as part of the Africa research team on an ambitious three-year research grant, funded by the ESRC, the ‘Human Rights Law Implementation Project’. This project is examining the factors which impact on the implementation of decisions from individual complaints to the UN and regional human rights bodies. It is anticipated that the findings of this project can help inform and strengthen the strategies and working practices of these bodies, as well as actors engaging with them such as litigators and complainants, State representatives, and civil society organisations.

Foluke I Adebisi, LLB LLM BL PhD FHEA, The Law School, University of Bristol. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Room 1.19, 8-10 Berkeley Square, Office Hours TB1: Thursdays 12-2.

'Dr Foluke Ifejola Adebisi is a Teaching Fellow at the Law School, University of Bristol. Her research, which is pedagogical as well as jurisprudential, examines what happens at the intersection of legal education, law, society and a history of changing ideas of what it means to be human. This research places emphasis on the processes through which knowledge is produced and how this production shapes the content of our curricula, the structure of the university and the collective impact on society, especially in terms of law, both domestic and international. She is particularly concerned with unveiling the present effects of Empire and imperial ideology and how that influences structural inequalities and narratives. Also, whether those structural inequalities and narratives can be decolonised. She is currently teaching a unit she co-designed, called Law and Race, which is one of the very few of its kind within the UK. Among other things the unit examines African and African-inspired legal philosophies and ideas about personhood. In October 2018, Foluke was included in the Bristol BAME Powerlist 2018 - A list of Bristol's 100 most inspiring people from BAME backgrounds. She is the founder of Forever Africa Conference and Events (FACE), a Pan-African interdisciplinary conference hosted in Bristol. The theme of the 2019 conference is ‘Building the Pan-African Inspired Multiversity.’ She blogs about her research and interrelated ideas on her website ‘Foluke’s African Skies’ at https://FolukeAfrica.com.'
