Background

Kjersti Lohne holds a doctorate in Criminology from the University of Oslo (2015). Her doctoral thesis, Advocates of Humanity: Human Rights NGOs in International Criminal Justice, analyses the cultural meaning of global justice-making through international criminal law, and focuses specifically on the role that human rights NGOs play in the materialities and imaginaries of international criminal justice. It is based on a multi-sited ethnography including interviews with key players in The Hague (and other places in the Netherlands) and in Uganda as well as Belgium, Norway, Rwanda and the UK.

Lohne received His Majesty the King's Gold Medal for this research in 2017 and has a contract with Oxford University Press to publish the work as part of the Clarendon Studies in Criminology

Lohne has previously worked as research assistant, researcher, lecturer and senior researcher at the Police University College (2010), the Department of Criminology and Sociology of Law, UiO (2011-2015), the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) (2010, 2016), and PluriCourts at the Department of Public and International Law, UiO (2016). She has also been a visiting researcher at the Center for International Criminal Justice at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (2013) and at the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford (2014).

She is currently a Visiting Research at iCourts at the University of Copenhagen.

Research interests

Lohne's primary thematic interest is the role of judicalisation and criminal punishment in the making of global social order, which she is currently approaching through a number of different empirical research fields and projects:

  • International criminal justice
  • The Guatanamo military commissions and the global war on terror
  • Rule of (criminal) law development and "penal aid" to transitional states (postdoctoral research project at IKRS). The project is part of the interdisciplinary research project Nordic Branding at UiO, and the Nordic project Nordic Exceptionalism in International Criminal Justice coordinated by iCourts at the University of Copenhagen.
  • Rights-based approaches to humanitarian action (with Kristin Bergtora Sandvik)

Lohne has also published in international peer-review journals on other research topics, such as privacy and data protection, gender, crime and sexual violence, and drones.
