Curriculum vitae

Alexander Kondakov is a postdoctoral researcher at the Aleksanteri Institute (University of Helsinki, Finland) and a research associate at the Centre for Gender, Feminisms and Sexualities (University College Dublin, Ireland). He is also an editor for the Journal of Social Policy Studies published by the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia. For a decade, Kondakov’s work has been primarily focused on law and sexuality studies, more specifically on queer sexualities and sex work regulation in Russia.

He has published numerous articles in Sexualities, Social and Legal Studies, and Feminist Legal Studies among others.
