Dr Mathilde Pavis has received support from the UK-Canada Foundation to undertake research in Canada on the legal protection of performing artists. The UK-Canada Foundation’s grant will enable Mathilde to carry out her research in Victoria at the University of Victoria over the summer of 2018. Mathilde writes:
“I am very grateful for the support of the UK-Canada Foundation and the warm welcome I have received from colleagues at the University of Victoria. The visiting scholarship gives me an invaluable opportunity to do comparative work in intellectual property with experts in the field, in the context of a mixed-legal system like Canada. I very much look froward to exchanging ideas and thoughts with experts at Victoria’s Faculty of Law.”
Mathilde’s work focuses on finding the legal means to better protect performing artists, their reputation and remuneration. More specifically, she will be examining legal protections for runway models in the UK, Canada and France.
