Saeb Kasm is a doctoral researcher at Queen Mary, University of London School of Law’s International State Crime Initiative. His research, supervised by Professor Penny Green and Dr. Thomas MacManus, critically explores the challenges and possibilities of digital technology as a medium for fighting corruption, upholding human rights, resisting state crime and ‘unmasking the crimes of the powerful.’
Saeb served as an anti-corruption consultant for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna, Austria, and contributed to a global legal database (Tools and Resources for Anti-Corruption Knowledge, TRACK) to better prevent and fight corruption. He previously taught political science at the University of California – Irvine.
Saeb holds a degree in Government from Claremont McKenna College (B.A., with distinction) and law degrees from Case Western Law School (J.D.) and the University of Vienna Law School (LL.M. – Public International Law). He has also had extensive training in international human rights, conflict resolution, multilateral governance, diplomacy and negotiation at Oxford University and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.
Saeb convenes the State Crime Seminar Series at Queen Mary and is an Associate Lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London School of Law (Department of Criminology) where he facilitates the State Crime module.
