MLS Postdoctoral Fellow
Dr Rosemary Grey is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Melbourne Law School. Her research focuses on gender issues in international criminal law, particularly the evolving law and practice regarding the prosecution of sexual and gender-based crimes.
In June 2016, Rosemary joined Melbourne Law School to commence a two-year postdoctoral research project titled ‘Prosecuting Gender Crimes at the International Criminal Court’. Informed by feminist critiques of international law, this project aims to identify and challenge gender discrimination in the interpretation of crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC.
In June 2017, she will deliver the International Criminal Justice Clinic at Melbourne Law School in partnership with Amnesty International.
Prior to coming to Melbourne Law School, Rosemary completed her PhD at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Her PhD thesis, titled ‘Prosecuting sexual and gender violence crimes in the International Criminal Court: Historical legacies and new opportunities’, presented an in-depth study of all cases before the ICC from 2002-2014.
While completing her PhD, Rosemary also lectured in international criminal law and other core subjects at UNSW Law. She also worked and volunteered with a number of Hague-based organisations including Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice, the International Bar Association, and the International Criminal Court.
