I am a defence counsel and have been working for several years in the private sector and as a member of the in-house staff of the Israeli Public Defence Office. I earned my LLB at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and during my years in practice also completed an MA in Gender Studies at the University of Tel Aviv.
I recently graduated from the MSc programme in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Oxford’s Centre for Criminology at the Faculty of Law and am now continuing my studies in the Centre’s DPhil programme.
My doctoral project will engage with Palestinian prisoners who were convicted of terror offences and incarcerated in Israel. The project will focus on the penal regime Israel imposes on Palestinian prisoners as a test case for the ways in which conflict shapes punishment.
