About Johan Karlsson Schaffer

  • Docent in Political Science, 2015.
  • PhD in Political Science, 2009.
  • MSc in Political Science, 2002.
  • BSc in International Relations, 2000.

Since August 2016, I am an associate professor at the School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg. I also hold an appointment as Senior Researcher att the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, University of Oslo.

My main research interests are located at the intersection of political and international theory, and especially human rights and democratic theory.

Since 2012, I am principal investigator for the research project The consensus paradox, funded by the Research Council of Norway. From 2007 to 2010, I was co-principal investigator for the research project Nordic prostitution policy reform and the causal role of ideas, funded by the Swedish Research Council. From 2009 to 2013, I was a postdoctoral researcher within the research project Should states ratify human rights conventions? and Multirights: The legitimacy of the multi-level human rights judiciary.

Teaching and tutoring

I teach courses on international relations theory and human rights. I also supervise student theses within my areas of expertise (international political theory, human rights, etc) and I'm currently co-supervising two doctoral students.
