He researches and teaches across a range of fields in international law, primarily international cultural heritage law and international human rights law.
Dr Maria Elander is a senior lecturer at La Trobe Law School, Melbourne. Her research is primarily in the broader field of international criminal justice, and engages with theories in cultural and feminist legal studies. Her work examines questions of representation and its limits (victimhood, gender and the visual), and has to date focused primarily on the Khmer Rouge Tribunal in Cambodia.
The aim of the Series is to bring together scholars from around the world employing interdisciplinary and critical approaches to the study of transitional justice and international law, broadly understood. The relationship between international law and societies ‘in transition’ has been subject to increased scholarly interest over the past years. By exploring how international law, memory, and power interact in current responses to the violence of the ‘past’, the Series intends to push the conversation forward, as well as build new research networks and opportunities for collaboration.
