Dr Kelly Staples is Associate Professor of International Politics at the University of Leicester. She is the author of the 2012 book, Retheorising Statelessness, published by Edinburgh University Press, and a contributor to the 2017 collection, Understanding Statelessness, published by Routledge, and has written elsewhere on recognition, membership and statelessness. Kelly has worked at the University of Leicester since 2009, teaching and researching on international politics. Aside from her work on statelessness, she is also interested in refugees, sanctuary and the meaning of home. She is dedicated to supervising research with a strong theoretical dimension and also interested in supervising research into protection-related issues such as citizenship, refugees, fragile states and statelessness as well as research in the broader fields of human rights and global ethics. Kelly is currently involved in a research project with colleagues at the University of Leicester and in Pakistan, sponsored by the Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies, called “Co-constructing Inequalities and Improving Wellbeing Post-Pandemic: Children’s Vision in five Major World Countries”. This has been funded by the Leicester Institute for Advanced Study.
