Elizabeth StanleyFriends of ISCI
Elizabeth Stanley is a ‘Reader in Criminology’ at the Institute of Criminology, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Her research focuses on state crime, human rights, and issues of justice, and she has published on these issues with regard to events in New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Timor-Leste, West Papua and the UK. Her publications include ‘Torture, Truth and Justice’ (Routledge, 2009) and ‘State Crime and Resistance’ (Routledge, 2013, co-edited with Jude McCulloch). She is currently writing a monograph on those who were victimised in New Zealand’s Social Welfare homes. This book explores the violence against children in state-run institutions, its long-term legacy, and the ways in which victim-survivors have sought to gain recognition. From 2014 to 2019, she holds a ‘Rutherford Discovery Fellowship’ to examine the changing nature of human rights in relation to prisoners, children in trouble and asylum seekers and refugees.
