Short CV:

Dr. Leonardo S. C. Castilho is a fellow at the KFG Research Group “The International Rule of Law: Rise or decline?”. He is currently working on a book project on new democracies and their support of human rights at the United Nations. His book project builds on his PhD thesis in International Relations / Political Science from the Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies (Geneva), which was awarded magna cum laude. Leonardo began his university studies on Law and International Relations at PUC-Rio, graduated from Sciences-Po Paris with a Master’s degree in International Affairs, and obtained a Master of Studies in International Human Rights Law from Oxford University. During his time as a PhD candidate, Leonardo was also a Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Leonardo obtained his PhD in parallel to a career working for the United Nations. After working for NGOs in Rio de Janeiro, and interning for the Interamerican Court of Human Rights, he joined UNFPA in 2005. For the last 15 years, he has worked for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), in various positions, in New York, in Geneva, and in several countries in Latin America. Leonardo worked on a range of issues, from public security to economic, social, and cultural rights, and development, always with an important focus on people, particularly women, children, people of African descent, indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, migrants, older persons, and youth. Leonardo is currently on academic leave from the United Nations. Leo is also a proud husband and a father.
