Dr Yuna Han’s research focuses on the intersection of international law and politics, specifically regarding international criminal justice and human rights prosecutions pertaining to weaker states of the international system. She is interested in understanding the political ramifications of prosecuting individuals for instances of mass violence, such as war crimes or genocide. She also works on the concept of sovereign authority and agency in IR theory, as well as the impact of individualisation of responsibility of violence more broadly in the international system.
She was previously a research associate at the European University Institute, working on the ERC project: “Individualisation of War: Reconfiguring the Morality, Law, and Politics of Armed Conflict”. She is also an affiliated research associate at the SOAS Centre on Conflict, Rights, and Justice. She holds a DPhil (Phd) from the University of Oxford, MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and BA from Harvard University.
