Maj Grasten is Assistant Professor in the Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School. Her main fields of interest are international relations, international legal theory and the interaction of law and politics in global governance. The project she is leading within CISTAS explores the role of civil society actors in the context of international law's expansion and fragmentation and to what extent a semblance of a global civil society can be identified. Her research draws mainly on the method of multi-sited ethnography. Maj has been a visiting fellow at Freie Universität Berlin, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and Kosovar Institute for Policy Research and Development (KIPRED). Between June and September 2017, she is a Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellow with the Laureate Program in International Law at Melbourne Law School. She is a board member of the European International Studies Association (EISA). Her research has recently been published in 
Journal of International Relations and Development and an edited volume on the Power of Legality (Cambridge University Press, 2016). She is currently editing a volume on the politics of translation in international relations.
