Projects per year
Alice researches international law, human rights and transitional justice, with a regional interest in the Middle East. She also explores land and property law issues linked to her core research themes. Her teaching reflects both her research interests and applied work.
Alice's monograph, Truth and Transitional Justice: Localising the International Legal Framework in Muslim Majority Legal Systems (2022), investigates synergies between international law and Islamic law in furthering truth-seeking, the formation of collective memories and the victims’ right to know the truth, as key aims of the international paradigm of transitional justice and broadly supported by the shari’ah.
Current and recent projects have attracted funding from ESRC-IAA, AHRC and the Society of Legal Scholars.
Between 2020-23 she will be leading, as PI, a project funded by AHRC (reference: AH/T007540/1) that seeks to better understand the humanitarian impact of continued forcible transfer of Palestinian Bedouin communities living in E1, Jerusalem, and how impunity for violations of international law contributes to the deterioration of humanitarian vulnerabilities. For more information, please consult the project website or get in touch via email. The project will be enhanced by digital outputs produced in collaboration with a Palestinian media company, supported by the AHRC-FoF (reference: AH/W006782/1).
