Myriam Dumont Robillard

Description

Myriam Dumont Robillard, 2011 Aisenstadt Fellow

After obtaining a bachelor degree in International Studies (Distinction, 2004) and her LL.B (Distinction, 2009), Myriam Dumont Robillard is now pursuing a LL.M at University of Montreal. She is also a member of the Quebec Bar since 2010.

Myriam's involvement in community work with caregivers in Montreal lead her to research on the regulation of domestic workers in both Canadian and International perspectives. As an Aisenstadt Fellow, she currently works at the Centre on the Equality and Community Initiative, a new project seeking to develop a framework to address systemic inequalities faced by community-based organisations in our society.

Besides the relation between community work and the law, Myriam's other areas of research and interest include labour law and the ILO, feminist legal theory, international humanitarian law as well as migration and refugee law.
