Research Description

BIO
 Dr. Yu-Jie Chen is an Assistant Research Professor at Institutum Iurisprudentiae of Academia Sinica and an Affiliated Scholar at the U.S.-Asia Law Institute of NYU School of Law. Her research focuses on human rights and international law and relations, particularly in the context of China, Taiwan and China-Taiwan relations. Her research has developed along four inter-related lines: (1) China's authoritarian political and legal system; (2) China's influence on the international human rights regime; (3) human rights and rule of law issues in China-Taiwan relations; (4) Taiwan's interaction with international human rights norms. In addition to publishing in academic journals in the US, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the UK, she also writes op-eds and takes part in public-facing discussions. She tweets as @yujiechentw.
 Yu-Jie received her J.S.D. and LL.M. degrees from NYU School of Law. She also holds an LL.M. and LL.B. from National Chengchi University in Taiwan. She was an inaugural Global Academic Fellow at the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law (2019-2020). She has had extensive experience as a research scholar at the U.S.-Asia Law Institute, NYU School of Law. Prior to that, she served as a researcher and advocate for the non-governmental organization Human Rights in China. She earlier practiced in the Taipei-based international law firm Lee and Li.
