Professor Stéphanie Laulhé ShaelouUCLAN

    Stéphanie Laulhé Shaelou has been actively involved in teaching, research and knowledge transfer in Cyprus and Europe for the past fifteen years. Based in Cyprus for most of her career but with experience in prestigious universities in Europe, her teaching, research and practical experience focus primarily on multiple aspects of EU law. French born and educated (University of Paris), she then went on to do her LLM and PhD in the UK (University of Leicester) in the broad area of EU law. She is Professor of European Law and Reform and Head of the School of Law at UCLan Cyprus. She is also the LLM course leader and is involved in teaching several EU-law related modules on the LLM, in particular Research Methods, EU Constitutional Law and Governance and EU Economic and Financial Governance. Her research evolves around multiple aspects of EU law and includes Cyprus-related legal issues in a comparative and transnational perspective (International/EU/national law). Over the years, Dr. Laulhé Shaelou has done extensive work on Cyprus as a special case of differentiated integration in the EU (PhD thesis, monograph) with focuses on free movement of goods/persons, EU external relations (book chapters) and on the application/scope of EU law in the EU Member States (comparative analysis of Cyprus and its territorial divisions – de facto division to the north; de jure regime of the Sovereign Base Areas). More recently, her research has also focused on the rights to trade/property as fundamental rights in International/EU law and their restriction in Cyprus in an attempt to examine the scope of the principle of effective legal remedies and to improve access to justice in Europe (ongoing research projects). Since January 2014, she is a member of the Network of Constitutional Experts established under the European Research Council project entitled ‘The role and future of national constitutions in European and Global Governance’. She has also developed an interest and expertise in legal issues relating to EU/EMU membership/withdrawal and the impact of EU citizenship on this process, both at conferences and in publications (in the Yearbook of European Law and book chapter for Cambridge University Press). In 2016, she was nominated for the Distinguished Research Award of the Cyprus Research Promotion. She regularly participates to Horizon 2020 consortia and is currently preparing a Twinning proposal on vulnerable rights in times of crisis. She also participated to Fralex of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), as an expert for Cyprus between 2006 and 2010. Her research also deals with EU economic governance, the financial crisis and its legal implications in Cyprus.
