Bio/Research

Lindsey Kingston is an Associate Professor of International Human Rights in Webster University’s Department of History, Politics, and International Relations. She directs the university’s Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies, which includes overseeing the undergraduate human rights program and the research journal Righting Wrongs: A Journal of Human Rights. She is the 2018 Fulbright Lecturer in International Politics at Università degli Studi di Milano, as well as a World Social Science Fellow and an editor for Human Rights Review.

Much of Kingston’s research centers on the concept of functioning citizenship when a person enjoys an active and mutually-beneficial relationship with a government. She is a topical expert on the issue of statelessness – when an individual does not have legal nationality to any country – and her work has received special recognition from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Her research interests also include forced migration, indigenous rights, transnational social movements, and human rights education (HRE). Her work has been published in International Journal of Refugee Law, The Journal of Human Rights, Human Rights Review, The Journal of Human Rights Practice, Forced Migration Review, BMC International Health and Human Rights, and several edited volumes. She recently edited Human Rights in Higher Education: Institutional, Classroom, and Community Approaches to Teaching Social Justice (forthcoming, Palgrave Macmillan), and her book Resisting Hierarchies of Personhood: Functioning Citizenship and the Rights to Place and Purpose is forthcoming from Oxford University Press.

Kingston earned her Ph.D. in Social Science at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, where she also earned an M.A. in Political Science. She holds an M.A. in Ethics and International Affairs from American University in Washington, D.C., as well as a B.S. in Journalism from Boston University.
