New Visitor at iCourts - Jamie Rowen

Jamie Rowen is an assistant professor of Criminology and Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto. She received her J.D. from Berkeley School of Law in 2009, her Ph.D. from the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program at Berkeley School of Law in 2012, and was a doctoral fellow at the American Bar Foundation in 2012-2013. Her research focuses on transitional justice, international criminal law, social movements, and international and comparative methods. She is working on a book manuscript that focuses on efforts to make truth commissions in the Balkans, Colombia and the United States. The findings are used to develop a theory of the politics of mobilization in the wake of state-sponsored violence. She is also working on a project with the American Bar Foundation to examine the use of quantitative and qualitative data in international criminal tribunals, and developing a project on the professionalization of the international criminal defense bar. Dr. Rowen has studied religion and post-conflict justice in Vietnam, developed life skills educational programs for orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa, worked with refugee women and children in Morocco, and examined human rights protections in Latin America with the Inter-American Institute for Human Rights in Costa Rica.
