Maria-Artemis Kolliniati is a doctoral research student of the collaborative 'Globalisation and Legal Theory' PhD programme at the University of Antwerp. She is currently working on a PhD project on the conflict among rights and their correlation with collective goods under the supervision of Prof. George Pavlakos. In her doctoral research she claims that the more significant theories of rights, such as deontological theories on the one hand and consequentialism on the other hand, have failed and she aims to develop J. Raz’s theory of rights.
Maria-Artemis holds a MA in Ethics/Moral Philosophy (2013) and a MA in Political Science and Sociology (2011) from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. She has studied Political Science and Public Administration (BA) at the University of Athens and she graduated (2008) with distinction (10th best student in a cohort of 128) which enabled her to participate in some high profile political science projects and she had the opportunity to work with a distinguished Professor: Nikolaos-Komninos Hlepas. Through this cooperation since 2008, she has been working as a political science researcher in several projects concerning the jurisprudence for the Local Government and the European Union. Through those projects she collaborated with a variety of important Greek Organisations such as the National Centre for Public Administration and Local Government, the Centre for European Constitutional Law-Themistocles and Dimitris Tsatsos Foundation, the Local Government Institute, the Unit for Migration Studies, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
