Professor Jo Shaw holds the Salvesen Chair of European Institutions in the School of Law of the University of Edinburgh. During the academic year 2017-2018, she was a EURIAS Fellow at the Helsinki Collegium. Before joining Edinburgh Law School in 2005, Jo was – among others – Professor of European Law and Jean Monnet Chair at the University of Manchester between 2001 and 2004, and Director of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.
Jo's teaching and research focuses on the field of the EU constitution and institutions, particularly in socio-legal and interdisciplinary perspective. She co-edits a major book series for CUP, the Cambridge Studies in European Law and Policy and is on the editorial board of the UACES-Routledge Contemporary European Studies (CES) book series. Over the years, Jo has had funding from the Nuffield Foundation, the ESRC, the British Academy, the AHRC and the European Science Foundation, for many different projects, including a large scale European Research Council funded project on the Europeanisation of Citizenship in the Successor States of the Former Yugoslavia (CITSEE) (2009-2014).
From 2017, Jo has been focusing on a series of projects related to citizenship regimes: what they are and how they work. Initially this work focuses on South East Europe, but over the following years it will extend to take in a global perspective. Jo will be blogging about this here.
