Marie ROTA is a lecturer in public law at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Management of Nancy (UL), a researcher at the IRENEE (UR-7303) and an associate at the Centre de Droit Comparé et Internationalisation du droit of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
Specialized in international and comparative human rights law, she conducted several long research stays in Latin America (Brazil, Mexico and Costa Rica) to write her thesis consisting of a comparative analysis of the jurisprudence of the European Court and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in the field of treaty interpretation (ed. LGDJ, 2018, 558 p.). Since then, she has continued her work devoted to the judicial interpretation of rights and freedoms, in international and comparative law by extending her field of study to other systems (United Nations Human Rights Committee, Court of Justice of the European Union, African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights, Courts of Opinion, etc.).
Interpretation – and thus law as language – is at the heart of her research. At the same time, she is involved in a scientific project entitled Écrire les plantes (Writing plants), which aims to highlight the role of plants through the process of writing (https://lesplantes.sciencesconf.org/). Anxious to inscribe her work in an interdisciplinary approach, she participates in several collective projects mixing philosophy, anthropology, sociology, psychology, plastic arts and literature. She is the author of about forty articles in international peer-reviewed scientific journals and collective works, of a book and has (co)directed several other collective works [referenced on the HAL platform].
