New Visiting Researcher at iCourts - Karen Lønne Ring

Karen is a PhD candidate at the Department of Social Sciences and Business at Roskilde University where she conducts research on procedural justice in international criminal law, specifically at the International Criminal Court.

In her PhD project, Karen examines the judicialization of victimhood at the ICC by investigating how the procedure for reviewing victim applications has evolved in practice. She employs empirical methods (semi-structured elite interviews) to discern what ideas and conceptions of victims and their role in proceedings are held by practitioners and how they have influenced the legal construction of victimhood at the Court.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s Degree in Law from the University of Copenhagen.
