Research overview

Dr Fijalkowski's main research interest is in transitional criminal justice in post-dictatorial and post-conflict states. She has co-edited a collection on this topic for Intersentia's Series on Transitional Justice (Transitional Criminal Justice in Post-Dictatorial and Post-Conflict Societies, 2015). She has obtained funding for her current research project on 'The Power of Images: photography, law and political trials'. The current focus is on Albania, Poland and former East Germany in the period 1946-1956. The project considers law as a matter of aesthetics and memory and seeks to make an original contribution to transitional justice, comparative criminal justice and, more broadly, interdisciplinary studies. See her recently published article in The International Journal for the Semiotics of Law on the life and 1946 trial of the Albanian writer and political dissident, Musine Kokalari.
