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.

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

As of January 2018, I am principal investigator for the research project The Scandinavian rights revolution: Individual rights, civil society mobilization and democratic change. Funded by the Swedish Research Council, this project is a collaboration with researchers at the universities of Oslo and Copenhagen.

From 2012 to 2017, I was 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.

Before joining the School of Global Studies, I worked at the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, as Senior Researcher from 2012 to 2017 and, prior to that, as a postdoctoral researcher within the research projects 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, legal mobilization, etc) and I'm currently co-supervising two doctoral students.
