Prior to joining the VU as Research Fellow, Jessica Elias was part of the international tribunals in The Hague. Her previous work had involved humanitarian and developmental work in Beirut with Oxfam Great Britain, The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the Lebanese Red Cross. Jessica has studied law and politics at the University of Kent, the American University of Beirut, the Lebanese University, Sciences Po Paris and Georgetown University.
In addition to her forthcoming research on critical approaches to International Criminal Law, Jessica will gives guest lectures for LPIS students and staff about this research. She intends to capitalise on this teaching experience throughout the one-year PhD training programme at VU by coaching LLM students in international moot court competitions.
