Lisa Ansems is working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology.
As of 15 February 2021 Lisa Ansems has been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology at Leiden University, on the theme of institutions for conflict resolution.
Until February 2021 Lisa worked at Utrecht University, where she conducted PhD research on perceived procedural justice among defendants in criminal cases. In this research, she combined qualitative methods (interviews) with quantitative methods (survey, experiment) and connected these empirical findings to (legal) normative reflections. The project was financed by a Research Talent grant of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and was supervised by Professor Kees van den Bos and Professor Elaine Mak.
Besides her PhD research Lisa has been involved in various other empirical legal research projects, including research on problem-solving justice, the procedure laid down in Article 12 of the Dutch Code of Criminal Procedure (which enables directly involved parties to complain against a decision not to prosecute), and class justice in the Dutch criminal justice system. Lisa's research has been published in national and international academic journals. She has presented her research during various national and international conferences, and has given guest lectures to students in the context of various courses.
