Judit Fabian’s work centres upon the idea of democratic global economic governance, which she is developing under the framework of inclusive global institutionalism. 


Her research has led to numerous academic and policy contributions in Canada and internationally, including presentations, authorship, and engagement with governments, arms-length organizations, and intergovernmental organizations. It has gained recognition by the political science community in Canada and internationally, being nominated and shortlisted for several awards and prizes.


She co-authored the most downloaded Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) paper of 2017, concerning the modernization of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). She also published on the question of preferential trade agreements versus multilateralism (2020) and is a proud contributor to the Handbook on Gender, Diversity and Federalism (2020) with a chapter on global governance. The title of her Ph.D. dissertation was “Towards a Theory of Democratic Global Economic Governance: Hybridization of Soft and Hard Law in the Case of Gender within the World Trade Organization,” which she is developing into a book. She also muses about the role of the “formal” and “informal” and the role of nationalism in governance. 


Judit is currently a visiting researcher at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa and is a member of the core group of the recently formed Gender Research Hub of the World Trade Organization (Switzerland). She completed a post-doctoral appointment at the School of Public Policy, University of Calgary, earned her Ph.D. in political science (supervised from political science, political economy and law) at Carleton University, her M.A. in political studies from Queen’s University, her B.A. in political studies and international political economy from Trent University, and her B.Sc. in horticultural engineering from John von Neumann University (Hungary). Judit has also received training at the European University Institute (Italy), studied at the University of Helsinki (Finland), and is a proud alumna of Canada World Youth. She likes to eat and discover new places.
