Eglantine Staunton

Eglantine is a Research Fellow/Lecturer in the Department of International Relations. She is also an Honorary Research Fellow at the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (University of Queensland) and the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (University of Leeds) where she was part of the executive team until 2019.

Her work focuses on human protection (in particular, atrocity prevention and the Responsibility to Protect), norm diffusion, and France’s foreign policy. She is also interested in the UN Security Council and the EU’s foreign policy.

Her book France, Humanitarian Intervention and the Responsibility to Protect will be published by Manchester University Press later this year. It brings together human protection, France’s foreign policy, and norm diffusion by reshaping our understanding of key principles and norms of human protection, correcting prevailing assumptions on France’s foreign policy, while making a wider contribution to the literature on how domestic and international norms interact. Her research has also been published in journals such as the European Journal of International Relations, International Relations, Global Responsibility to Protect, Modern and Contemporary France, and in edited volumes.

Eglantine is committed to making a significant impact on society and policy. As a consequence, she has provided recommendations to the UN Office on Genocide Prevention and the Responsibility to Protect and evidence to a number of Select Committee inquiries in the UK on issues of human protection. She also frequently does media interviews and contributes to The Conversation.

Before joining the ANU in 2019, Eglantine was a Research Fellow at the University of Leeds. She completed her PhD at the University of Queensland and holds MAs in International Studies from the University of Queensland and Sciences Po.
