Fields of interest:

I am coordinating a project on international minority protection and mass atrocity prevention, funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the period 2017-2019. Currently, I am looking into the situation for minorities in Myanmar in light of the democratization process.

My research looks at severe human rights abuses against minorities. I study mechanisms for monitoring, warning and prevention of mass atrocities. Myanmar is one case study of the project, but the project also has a comparative component. In September 2018 I coordinated a two-day international conference on mass atrocity prevention, to mark the 70th anniversary of the Genocide Convention. I am currently co-editing an anthology based on the conference papers. I am closely affiliated with the work of the Minority Network, coordinated by Ingvill Plesner at our center. My research provides input for the international activities of the Minority Network. I am also a member of the Politics after War research network.

 

Other Fields of interest:

  • Monitoring of human rights violations
  • South East Asia (Cambodia and Myanmar in particular)
  • Genocide studies
  • Human rights and international tribunals
  • Qualitative and comparative methods

PhD dissertation:

“Transitional Justice and the Problem of Legitimacy. A Study of the Mixed Courts in Cambodia and Sierra Leone.” 2015.
