Alessandra Cuppini is a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow (FWO) conducting research at the Human Rights Centre of Ghent University, under the supervision of Prof. Dr Clara Burbano Herrera. Her research looks at narrative victimology as a framework to analyse the constitutive role of the victim’s narrative, particularly in the construction of victimization as a historical event in proceedings before the International Criminal Court.
Funded by the Campbell Burns scholarship, she completed her PhD in Law at the University of Strathclyde (UK), which was recently published as a monograph by Routledge. Before joining Ghent University, Alessandra worked as an Associate Lecturer at the Faculty of Business and Law of The Open University (UK). She also was a Teaching Assistant and a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde Law School. Her academic experience includes research stays at the University of Barcelona and the University of Maastricht. Alessandra holds an LLB in Law and LLM in International Law from the University of Bologna (Italy).
She is a member of the Programme for Studies on Human Rights in Context.
