Dr. Marit De Haan's Bio

Marit de Haan was a PhD researcher at the Human Rights Centre of Ghent University. Her research dealt with the victim-survivors of the Chilean military dictatorship, and their evolving demands, perceptions and identities during the transitional justice period. The project is related to the larger ERC project “Righting victim participation in transitional justice” and supervised by Professor Tine Destrooper.

Marit completed her BSc in Psychology and MA in Global Criminology at Utrecht University. After graduating, she worked as a researcher in Chile (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile & Universidad de Chile), collaborating on various research projects in the area of restorative justice and victim’s justice needs. Other international projects she has worked on, amongst others for the City University of New York, focused on the reform of prisons worldwide and more humane responses to criminal behavior. Before starting her PhD, she worked for the Research and Documentation Centre of the Dutch Ministry of Justice. Marit has an interest in conflict resolution and acted as a mediator in neighborhood conflicts. She is currently a member of the editorial board of the Dutch-Flemish Journal for Restorative Justice (Tijdschrift voor Herstelrecht). 

Her research project was funded through an individual FWO PhD fellowship.
