What I am doing at the moment: Summer and Fall 2016
My main affiliation is now with the University of Oslo, but my research interests remain the same. Within our newest project, "Aid in Crisis? Rights-Based Approaches and Humanitarian Outcomes", I am conducting interviews with Norwegian humanitarian actors, and developing a paper on the Political Sociology of Humanitarianism together with Kjersti Lohne (UiO). Together with CMI and NUPI, our team at PRIO is currently wrapping up the "Protection of Civilians: From Principle to Practice" project. Over the coming months, I will continue my collaboration with Julieta Lemaitre at Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia) on transitional justice and legal mobilization in violent context and continue my work on soft law, humanitarian technology and refugee resettlement. I will also be the coordinator for the Humanitarianism research group at PRIO.
