PhD Candidate, Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, Coventry University
Sanne Weber is a PhD candidate and Research Assistant at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (Coventry University). Her main research interest is transitional justice and gender.
She is particularly interested in analysing how conflict affects gender relations, whether and how transitional justice mechanisms are capable of addressing and transforming gendered and other structural inequalities, and how transitional justice mechanisms can better respond to the needs and demands of survivors of conflict. She is currently undertaking fieldwork in Colombia, analysing the gendered dynamics of Colombia’s land restitution and reparation process.

Sanne holds MAs in the Theory and Practice of Human Rights from the University of Essex and History of International Relations from Utrecht University.
