Research profile

Dr Nadj's research is in the area of international criminal law, human rights and gender. In 2018, she published her monograph International Criminal Law and Sexual Violence against Women: The Interpretation of Gender in the Contemporary International Criminal Trial with Routledge.

Her research explores the portrayal of the various gendered identities that surface in armed conflict and it asks whether the law is capable of reflecting these in subsequent judgements. Although her main focus has been on the judgments of the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia and Rwanda, Dr Nadj is also interested in exploring the gendered identities that surface in the judgments of the International Criminal Court and the developments in the jurisprudence of the ICC.

Additionally, her future research aims to explore the widespread phenomenon of violence against women in peacetime, with a particular focus on femicides against women as a structural problem of violence against women.

In her research, Dr Nadj draws on feminist legal theory, intersectionality and critical legal theory. Additionally, she has published scholarly articles on housing and human rights, having explored in detail the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 from a human rights perspective.

Dr Nadj is interested in supervising PhD students in the areas of international criminal law, human rights law, gender, gender-based violence and armed conflict.
