I am a Reader at Dundee Law School. In my first career, I practiced as a civil rights and poverty lawyer in the US for nine years, including five years as a senior trial attorney with the Justice Department. After an interlude as a journalist reporting on genocide trials at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, I ran Human Rights Watch’s field office in Rwanda in 2002 and 2003. I was a Visiting Fellow at Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program in 2004. I previously taught at the Centre for Applied Human Rights (University of York), the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (University of London), The New School, and Harvard College. In the past, I also have worked as a consultant for the International Center for Transitional Justice, the Committee to Protect Journalists, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, Front Line Defenders, the Interchurch Organisation for Development Cooperation, and the Austrian Development Agency.
