Dr Patel joined ISCI as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in May 2012. Previously he was a researcher at the Centre on Human Rights in Conflict, University of East London, working on a project that examined the role of civil parties in the ongoing Khmer Rouge Tribunal in Cambodia.
Ian completed his MPhil and PhD at the University of Cambridge. His doctoral research at Cambridge was in legal theory and was funded by Queens’ College. It examined the relationship between testimony and accountability in law, and also considered self-narration as a species of evidence. One aim of this research was to interrogate the ways in which truth and reconciliation commissions rely upon and promote the testimony of victims and perpetrators in their engagement with criminal responsibility.
