      Research Statement

      Luke joined the School of Law, Queen's University Belfast as a lecturer in September 2013. He had previously worked as a research fellow on the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project 'Amnesties, Prosecution and the Public Interest in the Northern Ireland Transition' led by Professor Kieran McEvoy. 

      Luke's research interests are in the role of reparations in addressing past violations and the construction of victims' rights in domestic and international processes. His PhD examined the role of victims within the International Criminal Court and their ability to participate and claim reparations. His book 'Justice for Victims before the International Criminal Court' is published by Routledge (2014). His current research is exploring victim identity and responsibility in reparation mechanisms and the obligations of non-state actors.
