CV / Biography

Dr Antje du Bois-Pedain is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law and Deputy Director of the Centre for Penal Theory and Penal Ethics at the Institute of Criminology, where she leads the Centre’s research projects on Criminal Law and the Authority of the State, and Penal Censure, and has initiated the Centre’s Judicial-Academic Roundtable on Sentencing as well as the Centre’s Occasional Seminar Series. She also founded and convenes the Cambridge Transitional Justice Research Network, an informal association of Cambridge-based scholars working on issues of post-conflict justice and socio-political reform.

Dr du Bois-Pedain has published widely on criminal law and criminal justice ethics, transitional justice and penal theory. Her publications include a research monograph on Transitional Amnesty in South Africa (Cambridge University Press, 2007, paperback edition 2011) and edited collections on Liberal Criminal Theory: Essays for Andreas von Hirsch (co-edited with A.P. Simester and U. Neumann, Hart Publishing, 2014); Justice and Reconciliation in Post-Apartheid South Africa (co-edited with François du Bois; Cambridge University Press, 2008) and Freedom and Responsibility in Reproductive Choice (co-edited with J.R. Spencer; Hart Publishing, 2006). She held a British Academy/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowship in 2012 and received a Cambridge Humanities Research Grant in 2013. Through collaborative research projects and networks, Dr du Bois-Pedain has forged connections to scholars from around the globe. Standing collaborations include a funded network on the Europeanisation of criminal justice, and various projects by a group of international scholars concerned to revive transnational criminal law conversations.

Dr du Bois-Pedain is a member of the AHRC Peer Review College and has assessed major research applications for governmental bodies in various European countries. She is an editorial board member (thematic editor for Comparative Law and Legal Theory) of the Criminal Law Forum, a member of the editorial committee and of the case note committee of the Cambridge Law Journal, and regularly reviews manuscripts for leading publishers and journals internationally. Dr du Bois-Pedain is a fully qualified German laywer (First and Second State Examinations in Law, Hamburg, grades “gut”). She also holds a first-class M.Jur degree from the University of Oxford and was awarded her doctorate “summa cum laude” from the Humboldt-University of Berlin.

Dr du Bois-Pedain lectures and supervises criminal law and teaches a seminar course in ethics and the criminal law at undergraduate level. She also teaches philosophy of criminal law in the LLM. She supervises PhD students in the Faculty of Law and in the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLIS). She has also supervised an MPhil student in the Institute of Criminology.
