Silvia Suteu is Associate Professor at the University College London (UCL) Faculty of Laws in the United Kingdom.

She has published widely on these themes and her monograph, “Eternity Clauses in Democratic Constitutionalism”, was published by Oxford University Press in 2021. At UCL, she has convened the Public Law Group, has been an editor of the Current Legal Problems journal, and is the Gender Editor for Lex-Atlas: COVID-19, a global academic project mapping legal responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prof Suteu has also done work in international humanitarian and human rights law. She has provided legal expertise on constitution-building to organisations such as Democracy Reporting International, the Euromed Feminist Initiative, International IDEA, and UN Women. She has co-authored handbooks on gender-sensitive constitutions and legislation that have been used by government and policy-making experts and women’s rights NGOs. Prof Suteu is currently developing a project on the constitutionalisation of reproductive rights in comparative perspective, which complements her previous work on gender and the law.
