Biography

LaDawn Haglund is an associate professor of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University. She is also a Faculty Fellow at the Center for Law and Global Affairs, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and Senior Sustainability Scholar at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. She received her PhD in Sociology from New York University in 2005.

Professor Haglund's scholarly interests include human rights (in particular, economic and social rights and the human right to water), globalization and international political economy, the sociology of development, macro- and comparative sociology, law and society, and institutions and social change. Her most recent research analyzes the legal, social, and political dimensions of sustainability and natural resources management, particularly the human right to water and sanitation.

Her work has received support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board and the Brazilian Fulbright Commission. She is co-editor (with Robin Stryker) of "Closing the Rights Gap: From Human Rights to Social Transformation" (UC Press) and author of "Limiting Resources: Market-Led Reform and the Transformation of Public Goods" (Penn State Press), as well as articles in Latin American Perspectives, Journal of Human Rights, Water Policy, and European Journal of Sociology. Her affiliations include the American Sociological Association (where she is past chair of the Human Rights section), the Latin American Studies Association, the International Research Group on Law and Urban Space-IRGLUS, and the Law and Society Association (for which she co-coordinates the Collaborative Research Network on Economic and Social Rights - CRN 47).

At ASU, Professor Haglund is the director of the undergraduate Certificate in Human Rights. She teaches, among other things, Human Rights and Sustainability and Globalization and Economic Justice, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as the Global Politics of Human Rights.
