Summary of research

The broad area of research that this thesis will seek to cover is how courts exercising differing jurisdictions communicate with one another. We proceed to use the specific issue of victims – either of international crimes or gross violations of human rights by state actors – as our case study.


I live in rural Essex, having completed my LLB and LLM both at the University of Essex. I then spent two years out of education (having spent 5 years straight in HE). During those two years I spent time volunteering with the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and preparing for this PhD.
