Olesya Dovgalyukread bio
Born in Ukraine and raised in Russia, Olesya is currently pursuing her BSc in Politics and International Relations at the University of Bristol, United Kingdom. Her intellectual curiosity and research in interdisciplinary issues at the intersection of International Relations, International Law and Political Economy led her to present her work at international conferences and hold positions with non-governmental institutions (United Nations University) and student-led associations (IAPSS, ELSA, Bristol Law Review). Her major interest in the embryonic field of Cyber Law resulted in Olesya's co-authoring a subsequently published article on the interregional judicial cooperation in cybercrime prosecution, which also sparked her interest in Chinese legal tradition. Olesya intends to further pursue this interest at Yenching Academy through the Law and Society pathway to deepen her understanding of China’s distinct approach to international law, and contribute to the effective international dialogue on the principles of internet governance.
