PhD Title:
‘To Analyse the Issue of Overlap Between International Investment and International Human Rights Law/Obligations in the Context of Investment Dispute Arbitration’

Ms Akua Aboah graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with an LLM degree in 2010 after having previously pursued various international human rights and commercial law courses at the University of Cambridge (UK) and Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA). She obtained her LLB degree from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and between her degrees worked under various legal internship schemes in various law firms both in Ghana and abroad: White and Case LLP (London-UK) and Bentsi-Enchill Lesta & Ankomah (Ghana) just to name a few.

Her major research interest is in international investment law, in particular the role of international human rights to issues of investment law and its obligations. Her current research is on the perceived split between international human rights and investment law obligations within the investment-arbitration context routing the doctrine proportionality as the tool to diffuse these potential conflicts.
