Background

Anna holds a bachelor and a master with a major in law from Örebro University (2010), and a LLM/MAS in international humanitarian law and human rights from the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law (2012). She has worked as a lecturer in law at several universities, as a research assistant on a project on human trafficking, with training of military and civilian personnel to multinational civil-military operations, and at the Swedish Migration Agency. Previous experience also involves internships with Human Rights Watch and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining.

Research and teaching

Anna's primary research interests lay within international humanitarian law/the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law as well as their interplay with domestic law. Her PhD-project, with the working title 'Law Enforcement in Armed Conflict', examines international law governing means and methods of force in operations switching between law enforcement and conduct of hostilities.

In addition, Anna has, together with Sofie Høgestøl and Anne Christie Lie, co-edited a multidisciplinary book on Scandinavian foreign fighters entitled Fremmedkrigere: Forebygging, straffeforfølgning og rehabilitering i Skandinavia (Gyldendal, 2017). Her own chapter in the book concerns war crimes in Swedish law. The book has its origin in the multidisciplinary conference Nordic Approaches to Foreign Fighters (Oslo 2016).

Since 2015, Anna is a member of the multidisciplinary Research School on Peace and Conflict based at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). During March and April 2018 she is a guest researcher at PRIO.

Anna teaches public international law, in particular human rights law, international humanitarian law/the law of armed conflict, treaty law and international criminal law. She supervises students writing their master thesis in these areas as well as in international refugee law and Norwegian criminal law relating to terrorism. Previous teaching experience primarily includes other areas of public international law, but also constitutional EU-law, international/EU/Swedish refugee and migration law, and Swedish public law.
