School of Law
Marisa McVey is a lecturer at QUB School of Law. Her research critically examines current and potential mechanisms of corporate accountability for human and environmental rights.
She is currently working on projects related to human rights due diligence (HRDD) practices, emerging technologies and human rights, and corporate liability for climate change and environmental injustice.
Marisa’s research impact extends beyond the academy, through authorship of reports, policy briefings, blogs, and online articles aimed at the practitioner and public sphere. She has worked in collaboration with NGOs, civil society, stewardship organisations, and regulators to produce research on issues including modern slavery, HRDD and corporate human rights responsibility in relation to climate harm. Alongside collaborators in Scotland, Marisa recently produced the first corporate human rights benchmark assessment of the top Scottish companies.
