Rudina Jasini is an attorney and researcher specialising in international criminal law and human rights law. As an Economic Social Research Council (ESRC) fellow at the Faculty of Law, she is currently leading with Prof Carolyn Hoyle the ESRC Impact Acceleration Award (IAA) project "Advancing the Impact of Victim Participation at the International Criminal Court: Developing Avenues for Collaboration'' in cooperation with the International Criminal Court Office of Public Counsel for Victims and the International Criminal Court Bar Association. This project builds upon her research at the University of Oxford. It focuses on co-designing resources for the education and training of legal representatives for victims at the ICC. Previously, Rudina was appointed as an ESRC Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Postdoctoral Fellow at Oxford and a Postdoctoral Global Fellow at New York University Center for Human Rights and Global Justice. Rudina has also held appointments as a visiting scholar at Harvard Law School and the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law. In addition, Rudina has taught tutorials in public international law at Oxford University. She is the recipient of numerous academic awards and has presented her work at various conferences and symposia. In April 2015, Rudina was selected as member on the ILA International Committee on Complementarity in International Criminal Law.
Whilst her research has been primarily an intellectual endeavour, it has also been strongly influenced by her professional background as a practitioner. Prior to her time at Oxford, Rudina worked as an attorney for the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague on the defence team in the Haradinaj case. She has also worked with the legal team providing representation and assistance to victims of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, in the prosecution of Kaing Geuk Eav (a/k/a Duch).
Rudina holds a DPhil and an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Oxford University, an LLM in International Legal Studies from Georgetown University Law Center and a BA in Law from the University of Tirana.
