about the speaker

Alyssa Yamamoto is a human rights lawyer, who started working as the Robina Fellow to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights while Countering Terrorism in 2021. Previously she worked as a litigation associate at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, where she specialized in public international law and international dispute resolution. She graduated from Yale Law School and Harvard College. 



Each semester, CCDP hosts a series of internal seminars to give our faculty, staff and affiliates the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback. The goal of the seminars is to have an informal and frank conversation about the paper presented, and exchange ideas across disciplines and expertise, going beyond academic silos. Speakers at the seminars are both early career and senior scholars.

Augusta Nannerini and Elio Panese are organising the seminars for the academic year 2022-2023. For further information, get in touch at augusta.nannerini@graduateinstitute.ch or elio.panese@graduateinstitute.ch.
