Research overview

My main research interest is in transitional criminal justice. I am especially interested in the judge and judicial independence in communist and post-communist Europe. My publications in these areas include the co-edited volume Transitional Criminal Justice in Post-Dictatorial and Post-Conflict Societies (see the review in Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network); retrospective justice and legal culture; and the maladministration of justice. I am a member of the AHRC-funded network Culture and Its Uses as Testimony.

As Neil MacCormick Visiting Fellow at Edinburgh Law School, I advanced work on my current project about visual law, The Power of Images, where I consider how we experience the law when viewing images. In this project I consider photographs of trials from the period 1944-1957 in Albania, Germany and Poland. The research resulted in an exhibition on the Albanian writer/political dissident Musine Kokalari at the National Science and Media Museum. As well as curating the display, I produced a short, 'arty' film to accompany it, entitled An Unsung Hero: Musine Kokalari (2017).

PhD supervision

I am interested in research proposals from students writing dissertations or theses under the following headings: post-dictatorial / post-conflict (criminal) justice; totalitarian / communist crimes; terrorism; death penalty; freedom of expression.
