Mgr. Elena Gallová Kriglerová

 

Elena G. Kriglerová (1980) graduated from the Department of Sociology at the Comenius University’s Faculty of Arts in Bratislava (2003). Since 2012 she is the director of the Centre for the Research of Ethnicity and Culture. 

 

Elena Gallová Kriglerová worked in the Institute for Public Affairs as Research Fellow in 2001-2005 within the National Minorities Program. She participated in a number of research projects aimed at the situation of Roma in Slovakia, mainly the issues of poverty, social exclusion and interethnic relations. 

 

In 2006 Elena G. Kriglerová joined the Centre for the Research of Ethnicity and Culture as a Research Fellow. Professionally she is mainly concerned with sociology research aimed at education of children with national minority or migrant background. Since 2012 she has more intensively focused on the rights of the child in general.

Apart from these main issues Elena is also interested in interethnic relations, majority's attitudes towards minorities and integration of immigrants. She participated in a number of projects analyzing minority policies that CVEK carried out in the past years. 

 

Elena G. Kriglerová authored and co-authored numerous publications and research reports. In 2003 - 2010 she was a regular contributor to the Annual Report on the State of Society (published by the Institute of Public Affairs). Her chapters analyzed the situation of Roma in Slovakia in a given year.

Her doctoral thesis, entitled Ethnocultural Justice for the Roma in Slovakia, introduces a theory of national minority rights based on a contextual understanding of ethnocultural justice. Her thesis not only defends a normative account of what ethnocultural justice for the Roma means, but also introduces an institutional proposal of a personal cultural autonomy that can advance both cultural and socio-economic empowerment of the Roma.

 

Dr. Jarmila Lajčáková has held various fellowships, including the Robert Law Fellowship in Legal Ethics (2006), the International Programme on Reproductive and Sexual Health Law Research Fellowship (2005) and the University of Toronto Doctoral Fellowship (2003-2007).

She was involved, among other things, in the preparation of the government strategy on the integration of Romani communities, adopted in 2003. She also co-authored an amicus brief in 2004 concerning the constitutionality of affirmative action in Slovakia, submitted by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on the topic of Human Rights and Minorities. In 2005, Dr. Jarmila Lajčáková prepared a legal analysis on the Draft Treaty on the Protection of Conscientious Objection between Slovakia and the Holy See for an NGO Pro Choice, Slovakia. The legal analysis provided helped to prevent adoption of the draft treaty. During her doctoral studies, Dr. Jarmila Lajčáková worked as a research assistant for Professor Patrick Macklem. Since 2006 Dr. Jarmila Lajčáková participates on the project Ethnicity and Democratic Governance leaded by Prof. Will Kymlicka of the Queen’s University, Canada.
