Crowds at proceedings humanized doctoral candidate's research

Rosa Aloisi, doctoral candidate 2011Rosa Aloisi, right, will never forget the crowd of women holding signs in honor of their deceased loved ones outside the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague in July 2009. The women awaited the start of the trial of Radovan Karadzic, the former Bosnian Serb leader who faced war crime charges for his role in the Bosnian Civil War.

Aloisi, a doctoral student in political science, was interning at the tribunal, which prosecutes individuals accused of war crimes. 

The women put a human face on her research about international justice and human rights protections, and made it clear that her work has value. 

“ … I would like to think our research will improve the conditions of lives of those citizens that live in countries where their basic human rights are violated consistently,” she says.

James Meernik, acting dean of the Toulouse Graduate School, serves as Aloisi's dissertation advisor. Aloisi chose her field of study after reading articles that Meernik had written about international law.
