    Jackson Oldfield joined the Amsterdam Centre for International Law (ACIL) in 2017, as part of the Law and Justice Across Borders Research Priority Area. His PhD research looked at smuggling in international law, analyising treaties addressing smuggling from 1890 to 2012 and questioning the purposes for their development. 

    Jackson is a graduate of Lund University, Sweden and Cardiff University, U.K., where he undertook a LLM in International Human Rights Law and International Labour Rights and a LLB in Law respectively. After obtaining his LLM, Jackson worked in a range of research and research coordination positions in human rights and anti-corruption civil society organisations, looking at topics from corruption to business and human rights and democracy in Europe.
