Review of Ass. Prof. Łukasz Szoszkiewicz (PhD), Assistant Professor at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland)

I am an Assistant Professor at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland). My research focuses on the intersection of new technologies and international human rights law, in particular social, economic and cultural rights as well as children’s rights. In 2021, I successfully defended my PhD thesis on States’ obligations related to data governance derived from the selected UN treaties. I have a strong interest in applying empirical and computational methods in legal research. As the Data Coordinator for the UN Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty (2018-2019), I was responsible for the development of statistical models aiming at estimating the global number of children deprived of liberty. Currently, I am engaged in several follow-up projects to the Global Study implemented by the Global Campus of Human Rights.

Since March 2022, I stay as a visiting researcher at the Department of Innovation and Digitalization of Law, University of Vienna. During my stay, I would like to focus on the exploration of new topics in the area of data science and law and to prepare and/or conceptualize an application for either MSCA or Max Weber fellowship. I am also interested in consulting the lecturers on their experience in implementing courses on programming and hackathon. As a co-organizer of the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science - SICSS AMU/Law 2022, I am willing to learn how to effectively teach technical skills to lawyers.
