Noam Peleg joined UCL in September 2012 as a Postdoctoral Associate. Dr Peleg completed his Ph.D and LLM at UCL, and was awarded the Faculty of Laws Doctoral Research Students Scholarship and the British Council Chevening-UCL Israel Alumni–Chaim Herzog Award for LLM studies.

Before undertaking his doctorate, Noam worked in a number of human rights organizations, where he specialized in children’s rights, family law and international human rights law. He has extensive experience representing children in courts, and in litigation before the Supreme Court of Israel in humanitarian law cases.

Noam has also served as a law clerk at the Tel Aviv District Court, worked for Israel’s National Committee on the Rights of the Child and consulted a number of human rights NGO’s. He has taught at the LSE, Tel Aviv University, the Academic College of Management, and the Interdisciplinary Center in Israel. He is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Children’ Rights.

Dr Peleg’s research focuses on children’s rights in international human rights law. His current research projects involve reconceptualising children’s right to development, minority children’s rights in the context of education, the role of children’s rights in international development, and the intersections between childhood studies and children’s rights.
