Celine A. Jacquemin, Ph.D., was born and raised in France. Dr. Celine, as her students call her, is an Associate Professor of Political Science and is currently serving as Associate Dean for the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Her research focuses on international response to genocide and to patterns of human rights violations.
Her expertise covers parts of Europe and the Great Lakes of Africa where she more closely studies Rwanda. A constructivist by training, she is developing a new framework that can further help us understand what makes it ‘easy’ for people to violate the rights of others in order to educate for the respect of human rights. She is expanding her focus to the case of Darfur in the Sudan. This is how she has come to “Researching the Road to Peace” where she makes ground breaking conclusions.
She also serves as a pro-bono expert witness for political asylum cases often linked to female genital mutilation and rape with the St Mary’s University Center for Legal and Social Justice.
She co-authored a chapter with Alison Brysk “Bridging Borders for Human Rights” in Transnational Civil Society published by Kumarian Press in 2006. In November 2008, she published “Allied against all odds to fight genocide: How far has the US come?” in Revista Espaco Academico. In April 2010, she published “Female Genital Cutting: shattering the debate yet still violating human rights” also in Revista Espaco Academico.
Eva Bueno, Ph.D., and Celine Jacquemin, Ph.D., were published in the latest Revista Espaco Academico. Read both articles online here.
