Karen Knop

Department of law
University of Toronto


Karen Knop, B. Sc. (Hons.), LL.B. (Dalhousie), LL.M. (Columbia), S.J.D. (Toronto), is a professor and Associate Dean Research at the Faculty of Law. From 2007 to 2012, she was editor of the University of Toronto Law Journal. Professor Knop writes on issues of diversity, interpretation and participation in public international law. While such issues are usually studied as part of international human rights law, her scholarship is broadly concerned with the challenges of gender and cultural differences to core concepts in public international law, including sovereignty, self-determination, nationality and the relationship between international and domestic law. Her recent articles develop alternative approaches to these topics by turning to private international law and foreign relations law.
