Prof. Alvarez hopes to hire one or two students (hopefully with a background in international law and/or human rights) who are interested in assisting me and my co-author with my on-going book project on CEDAW and its approach to protecting the rights of women to inheritance and other “property” rights.
I will be looking for one or two students who might be interested in working either for pay or for credit for the summer (for up to 10 hours a week) and, if mutual interest exists, beyond into the fall term.
(The credit option is ideal for those who might be interest in writing about the subject themselves; for-credit work is more substantive than work-for-pay.)
The work will consist of examining the protection of property rights in human rights committees, including under the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by way of comparison with the work that CEDAW Committee has done.
Work can start as soon as possible.
If interested please email Prof. Alvarez (email@example.com) your CV, informal list of NYU grades, and a short cover letter explaining your interest (and/or background).
