Dr Lisa Mardikian
Dr Lisa Mardikian
Lecturer in Property Law
Lisa's research focuses on property law, with particular emphasis on two strands: firstly, regulation of property rights as an institution of private law governing the economy, but also as a tool for pursuing wider social and economic objectives, especially under International and European law. The second strand engages with the protection of property rights in post-conflict settings i.e. rights of restitution and compensation for the loss or destruction of housing, land and properties as a result of armed conflict or military occupation.
