Research overview

Dr Fijalkowski's main research interest is in transitional criminal justice in post-dictatorial and post-conflict states. Her most recent works include the co-edited collection, Transitional Criminal Justice in Post-Dictatorial and Post-Conflict Societies (Intersentia 2015), which stemmed from British Academy funding and ‘Musine Kokalari and the Power of Images: law, aesthetics and memory regimes in the Albanian Experience’, which was published in 2015 in the International Journal for the Semiotics of Law. A review of Transitional Criminal Justice is available in Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network . She has contributed chapters to the forthcoming Textbook on Transitional Justice, ed. O. Simić (Routledge) and co-authored a chapter for the forthcoming Justice, Memory and Redress: New Insights from Romania, eds. L. Stan and L. Turcescu (Cambridge Scholars). In addition to examining transitional justice measures in Albania, Dr Fijalkowski has written about Polish resistance fighters and the maladministration of justice in communist Europe. Her current research project explores the experience of the law through the analysis of images taken at trials in Albania, East Germany and Poland. The images have been gathered from collections at the respective national archives. The study demonstrates the way that alternative dispute solutions in certain societies highlight justice roles and document atrocities that legal proceedings are not able to approach. Dr Fijalkowski has also published on the death penalty and its abolition in post-Communist Europe, and on Polish constitutional developments in From Old Times to New Europe (Ashgate 2010).
