About the project

For each of these case studies he analyzes the accountability mechanisms that individuals presently have access to when their rights, and assess their sufficiency. The three case studies are:

  • Accountability mechanisms of the ICC Detention Centre.

  • Accountability mechanisms in connection with the European Union's Common Security and Defence Policy Missions, notably the NAVFOR operation off the coast of Somalia and EULEX Kosovo.

  • Accountability mechanisms in connection with UNHCR-administered refugee camps.


The project is expected to conclude in March 2017, with the submission of my PhD thesis.
