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 practiced in number of human rights organizations, where he specialized in children’s rights, humanitarian law, family law and education law. He has extensive experience representing children in courts, and in litigation before the Supreme Court of Israel, particularly in humanitarian law cases.
Noam has also served as a law clerk at the Tel Aviv District Court, and worked for Israel’s National Committee on the Rights of the Child. He has taught at the LSE, Tel Aviv University, Academic College of Management, and the Interdisciplinary Centre 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, the protection of minority children’s rights, the role of children’s rights in international development, and the intersections between childhood studies and children’s rights.
