Sarah-Jane Koulen

Sarah-Jane Koulen is a third year student  interested in the development of international criminal jurisdiction, and in particular the establishment of international criminal courts and tribunals with jurisdiction over 'the worst crimes of concern to the international community' (Rome Statute). Her work will be geographically situated in The Hague (The Netherlands) and Arusha (Tanzania), and will attend to the ways in which the practice of international criminal law extends beyond as well as connects institutional and national boundaries. By following and learning from the transnational community of experts who work in the field of international criminal justice, she hopes to contribute to an understanding of how the field works, how experts in the field experience their work, and how transnational legal knowledge and expertise is produced and perpetuated through human labor and commitments. Sarah-Jane holds an LL.M. in Human Rights from SOAS, University of London.
