Dr Emily Haslam joined Kent Law School in 2004, having worked as a lecturer at the University of Sussex and the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. She is a graduate of LSE (LL.B, Phd) and King's College London (LLM). Her doctoral research explored the vital role played by civil society consent and contestation in the development and enforcement of international criminal law.
Emily's current research interests lie in international criminal law, more specifically in the relationships between international criminal law and civil society; in the construction of victims in international criminal law and legal processes, and in nineteenth century slave trade abolition litigation. Much of her current research draws on archival work to interrogate the contribution of slave trade abolition litigation to the development of international law and to reflect upon post-colonial continuities in international criminal legal practices and discourses. She is a member of the Centre for Critical International Law at Kent (Cecil).
