Welcome to the Institute, Keketso!
We are delighted to welcome our new colleague Keketso Kgomosotho to the Institute.
Keketso Kgomosotho is an experienced attorney and researcher from South Africa, with extensive knowledge of international and regional law as well as policy. He is currently persuing a PhD at the University of Vienna, researching how discrimination produced by computer algorithms interacts with international laws that aim to prevent discrimination. Thereby, he is especially interested in exploring how people from the global south are impacted.
Keketso holds a Master’s degree in International Law from the University of Pretoria. He brings a wealth of experience, having worked previously as a lecturer, consultant, human rights attorney and as research advisor to the Chairperson of the South African Human Rights Commission. His research interests lie at the intersection between human rights, well-being and emerging technologies such as Artificial intelligence.
Since February 2023 Keketso has been working as a university assistant at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights (LBI-GMR) in the programme line “General Human Rights”.
