I am a PhD researcher at the European University Institute writing a history of a group of activists and intellectuals that initiated a practice of holding trials and promulgating laws without being authorized to do so by any state. The project narrates the history of this group from the first and second Russell Tribunal to the Algiers Declaration and the establishment of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal.
My research draws on the history and theory of international law, critical theory, and legal and political philosophy.
Before the EUI, I was at the University of Amsterdam, where I obtained degrees in law (LLB, LLM res.), philosophy (Ba, Ma), and social sciences (BSc) and worked as a junior lecturer and researcher.
