We are very pleased to welcome Shakira Bedoya, who will enrich the work of the Research Project C3 “Police-building and Transnational Security Fields in Latin America” as of October 2014. Shakira Bedoya was a doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law and at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology and a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge. In addition, she has participated in the work of the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission and worked as a legal clerk at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington, D.C, and at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague.
While at the SFB 700, Shakira examines the production of knowledge of forensic expertise surrounding exhumation initiatives and how this knowledge and its epistemological preconditions relate to legal issues of justice. In particular, she is interested in the travelling of the concepts of forensic expert knowledge between Latin America and Africa. We are very happy to have her with us and look forward to an inspiring and fruitful cooperation.
