Nicola Palmer is a lecturer in criminal law at the Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London. She received her D.Phil in law from the University of Oxford in 2011. Prior to starting her doctoral studies, she worked as a legal assistant at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), having completed her undergraduate and honours degrees in law and economics at Rhodes University, South Africa. She was an American Society for International Law Helton Fellow in 2009 and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship in 2007. Nicola's broad research interests are in international criminal law, transitional justice and the compatibility of plural responses to violence. Her current research focuses on criminal justice in post-genocide Rwanda, examining the interactions among international, national and localised criminal courts. She has published on the transfer of cases from the ICTR to the Rwandan national courts and the domestic interpretations of international law in Rwanda. Her forth-coming book, 'Courts in Conflict: Interpreting Criminal Justice in Post-Genocide Rwanda' will be published with OUP in 2015. In addition, Dr. Palmer has recently completed an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) project, in collaboration with Dr. Briony Jones at swisspeace, on the methods used to formulate, implement and assess transitional justice processes.
