Short presentation

I am a PhD candidate at the Department 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 historical intersections with political activism, NGOs, and fact-finding in war and conflict. My dissertation explores the methods and epistemological assumptions of the 1967 International War Crimes Tribunal, commonly known as the Russell Tribunal.
