Short presentation

I am a doctoral student at the Dept. of History of Science and Ideas, and also affiliated with the Engaging Vulnerability research program, since 2018. My research interests concern international criminal law and its various intersections with political activism, knowledge production, epistemology, refugee law and other fields of international law. My dissertation project explores the 1967 International War Crimes Tribunal, commonly known as the Russell Tribunal.

Keywords: international criminal law war crimes legal epistemology fact-finding missions commissions of inquiry peoples tribunals epistemic injustice
