Kristin Bergtora Sandvik
I am the Centre Director for the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies, which aims to promote and facilitate critical and relevant research on key humanitarian issues
§ My research focuses on the interface between international law, humanitarianism, technology and violence.
§ What are the humanitarian and legal consequences of increasingly automated and autonomous weapon platforms? What is the future of accountability? I explore these themes in my project on emergent military technologies focusing on cyberwar and drones.
§ What is the role of law in the protection of civilians? My research on indigenous groups and
internally displaced women in Colombia investigates how political organizing and legal mobilization shape the everyday life of marginalized groups in the midst of violent conflict.
