New PhD Student at iCourts

Sarah Scott Ford’s project is focused on temporary protection in refugee contexts, as it pertains to danish socio-legal practices and to the European Court of Human Rights. The project seeks to critically examine the relationship between human rights and immigration, by delineating and questioning the scope for administrative justice in cases of temporary protection.

Sarah has a BA in Human Rights from Malmo University, and a MSc in Sociology of Law from Lund University. She has previously worked at the Danish Institute for Human Rights, where she mainly conducted research on sustainable development in an African context. She have also worked on human rights education at Amnesty International Denmark, and managed a refugee integration programme in Southern Italy in the summer of 2018.
