More information about Claire Vergerio

Claire Vergerio is an assistant professor of International Relations at the Institute of Political Science.

Her research lies at the intersection of history, international relations, and international law, with a particular interest in war and empires.

She is currently working on two main projects on the history of the laws of war. The first is a book on the role played by sixteenth century jurist Alberico Gentili in the construction of the modern right to wage war. The second focuses on the simultaneous emergence of the modern laws of war and of the first counterinsurgency manuals in the late nineteenth century. In the context of these projects, Claire is a member of the research network Understanding Insurgencies: Resonances from the Colonial Past and she has been a visiting researcher at the University of Helsinki’s Erik Castrén Institute of International Law and Human Rights.

Additionally, Claire has had a long-standing interest in transitional justice and international criminal law. She was the Chief Editor of Oxford Transitional Justice Research, she worked on the Hissène Habré case during her time at Human Rights Watch, and she was a legal officer on a defense team before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. This practical involvement in international justice cases pertaining to post-conflict situations has constituted one of the key starting points of her historical investigations.

Before coming to Leiden, Claire studied at Brown University and at the University of Oxford, from which she received her DPhil in 2017.
