 Brief description of your activity focus
Research into far-right extremism, hate speech and crime, non-discrimination and the rule of law and human rights education

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Her research and teaching expertise rest in the areas of human rights law, international law and European Law.
She holds degrees from Warwick University (LL.B), Utrecht University (LL.M) and has submitted her PhD thesis to
the Vreij Universiteit Amsterdam and is currently awaiting her viva. Through a comparative analysis of Greece
and England and Wales, her thesis looked at the legal tools available to challenge far-right political parties, non-
party groups and subculture movements. The assessment of national legislation and case-law was placed within a
European and international framework, looking at relevant mechanisms and Conventions as well as case-law. For
example, her thesis looked at the ICERD and the ICCPR and related case-law of the UN Committees, case-law of
the European Court of Human Rights as well as EU mechanisms such as Article 7 TEU.

Her current research continues to focus on the legal regulation of the far-right as well as particular aspects of
the far-right to include online and offline hate speech, the regulation of internet hate and hate crime. She has
presented papers at two academic conferences which took place at the VU Amsterdam and is currently awaiting
publication of these papers, one of which is on regulation of internet hate and the other on anti-discrimination
law in Greece. She has recently written a book review of the book ‘Tolerating intolerance: the price of
protecting extremism’ by Amos N. Guiora, which has been published in the eExtreme newsletter of the ECPRs
standing group ‘Extremism and Democracy.’ Natalie has taken part in conferences with academics and
stakeholders such as the Police and the Ombudsperson as co-organiser and speaker. The themes of the
conferences have been hate speech and hate crime, LGBTI rights, the representation of migrants in Cypriot
media and the role of human rights education in Cypriot society. She has recently coordinated a project which
created the first platform on hate speech available in English and Greek which, among other themes, provides an
overview of relevant international, European and national laws on hate speech regulation.

In addition to her academic interests, Natalie was the country researcher for a 2016 European Network against
Racism report on Afrophobia. As director of an NGO working on human rights education, she has been part of a
number of European, international and national projects which focus on themes ranging from human rights
education for young people to capacity building of competent authorities on issues such as combatting hate
speech and hate crime. Her administrative duties at the University include her role as module leader of EU Law.
