Eva Erman earned her doctorate in political science from Stockholm University (Sweden). She studies international human rights discourse—specifically the relationship between types of rights (e.g. positive and negative rights; individual and collective rights) and rights dichotomies, both from empirical and theoretical-philosophical points of view. Ms. Erman has a B.S. in behavioral science and political science, and an M.S. in political science, both from Stockholm University. She also completed part of her studies toward the MS degree at London's Kingston University. Ms. Erman was a Visiting Scholar at the Center during the Fall 2000 Semester. She obtained funding support for her stay from STINT (The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation and Higher Education).
