Meet Iuliia Anosova
Iuliia Anosova is a researcher and practitioner specializing in international law and human rights. She obtained her PhD degree in International Law at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in 2019. In her PhD thesis she explored the jurisdiction of the international courts over the crime of genocide, focusing on co-existence and interplay of the regimes of individual and state responsibility for this crime. Since 2018 she has been working as a lawyer and legal expert at Ukrainian civil society organizations, specializing in gender-based violence, human trafficking, children and women`s rights. She is also a regular guest lecturer at the Educational and Scientific Institute of International Relations of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. In 2022 she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Law of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Iuliia joined the Human Rights Center at Ghent University as a postdoctoral fellow under the MSCA4Ukraine fellowship programme. Under the mentorship of Prof. Tine Destrooper she will be conducting the research titled “(In)Visible Crime: Dealing with Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in International and National Contexts. A Case-Study of Ukraine”. Using the multidisciplinary lens of law, sociology, anthropology, political science and feminist theory, the project will examine which formal and informal impediments within international and national criminal justice systems preclude effective response to conflict-related sexual violence, with particular focus on the case of Ukraine. Apart from being the first in its kind comprehensive exploration of Ukrainian experience of dealing with the issue of conflict-related sexual violence, the project also aims to find explanation on why international sexual violence crimes and their victims still remain less visible in the eyes of the international and national criminal justice actors.
