It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce to you, Alana Tiemessen, who has joined JiC as a new co-author. Many will already be familiar with Alana’s work on transitional justice, international criminal justice and lawfare at The Duck of Minerva and the Canadian International Council, amongst other publications. Alana already has a fantastic post up on Fatou Bensouda’s defense against allegations that the ICC has an African bias. We simply could not be happier that she’s agreed to join JiC!
Here’s a bit from her bio:
Alana will be joining the University of Chicago in fall 2012 as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Science and is presently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at UMass Amherst. Her current research focuses on judicial interventions and the International Criminal Court, transitional justice norms and practice, and the intersection of international security and human rights in failed states and post-conflict societies. She received her PhD in Political Science from the University of British Columbia in 2011. You can follow her on Twitter and on Academia.edu
Please join me in welcoming Alana!
