Sarah M. Field, LL.B. (Dubl), Ph.D. (NUI)

Creator of Rights Streams 

Sarah has a blend of applied and academic experience supporting the fulfilment of international human rights law through international research and advocacy projects. In this capacity she has led and coordinated projects in Europe, southern and eastern Africa and Asia for organisations such as the International Labour Office, The African Child Policy Forum and Cross-European GENOVATE Consortium. Her doctoral research probed peace processes from a juristic, human rights and child rights perspective, as developed in Law of Peace(making) and Children's International Human Rights. It offers (a) principles for assessing the same from an international human rights perspective and (b) a staged pathway for giving effect to children’s rights in peacemaking. Together with her broader applied experience, the findings of this research forged the development of Rights Streams. It includes project streams on this and other interrelated subjects. The streams offered here aspire to support the process of bringing the law alive by driving new ways of seeing and acting (see more here). Sarah has an LLB from Trinity College Dublin and a PhD from University College Cork, Ireland, and is available for human rights related consultancies from January 2019.
