Biography

Anneloes Hoff is a DPhil candidate at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and St Antony’s College. Her research explores the legal and moral norms and principles governing the relations between large mining corporations and local communities. Based on multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Colombia, the project examines the ambivalent boundaries between the corporation and the community, and the contested processes that determine how the social responsibilities of a mining corporation are understood. Anneloes is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

Prior to starting her doctorate, Anneloes completed a Master of Studies in Socio-Legal Research at the the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies. Her thesis, titled Mobilising an Aspirational Constitution: The Case of Colombia’s Mining Consultations’, explored the instrumental and ideological power of law in grassroots protests against large-scale mining in Colombia, and was awarded the 2017 Thesis Prize of the Dutch-Flemish Association for Socio-Legal Studies. She also holds a BA (Hons) (summa cum laude) in International Law and Politics with a minor in Research Methods and Statistics from University College Roosevelt (Utrecht University, the Netherlands), and was a visiting student at Lund University (Sweden), where she focused on International Development and International Political Economy. Her bachelor thesis was selected as the Overall Winner in International Relations and Politics at the 2014 Undergraduate Awards, an international competition for undergraduate research.
