It is our great pleasure to introduce our new IntLawGrrls contributor Laura Nacyte.
Laura holds a BA (Hons) in Political Science from Vytautas Magnus University, Lithuania, and an MSc in Global Security from the University of Glasgow. Her academic interests revolved around gender inequality and social justice issues; in researching them, she utilised interdisciplinary — political, legal and sociological — perspectives. She finalised the MSc studies with the dissertation “The Copenhagen School Meets International Law: Has the International Criminal Court Impeded the Securitisation of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence?”
Following graduation, she has been actively involved in the third sector. She has participated in the Standing Safe Campaign, My Body Back Clinic, and Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis. She is currently based at Rape Crisis Scotland, and continues to work as a helpline volunteer at Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis.
