Sarah-Jane is a cultural anthropologist who studies legal processes and the (in)ability of the legal form to address complex social realities. Her research studies the turn to international criminal prosecution for violations of specific human rights violations and the bureaucratic transnational forms this new field of practice has produced, from courts and tribunals, NGOs and civil society organizations to independent evidence collectors and forensic training institutes. Sarah-Jane spent several years conducting ethnographic research with lawyers and practitioners in the international justice community in The Hague, New York, Arusha, Sarajevo and Kosovo. Centrally, she is interested in the effort to mobilize the logic of criminal law and individual criminal prosecutions as a form of humanitarian intervention and care. More recently, she has become interested in the extension of the logic of international criminal law to asylum proceedings.
