About Sari Kouvo

I hold an associate professor degree in international law and a lectureship in jurisprudence and legal theory. Before joining Gothenburg University, I worked as adviser on human rights and gender issues in the crisis management structures of the European External Action Service. Besides my academic responsibilities, I serve as co-directors of the Afghanistan Analysts Network, a field-based research organisation based in Kabul.

I have previously worked as Head of Program at the International Centre for Transitional Justice (2007-2011), researcher at Amnesty International (2007), Human Rights and Rule of Law Adviser to the EU Special Representative for Afghanistan (2004-2006) and lecturer at Gothenburg University (1999-2004).

I hold a doctorate in International Law from Gothenburg University (Sweden). I have held visiting fellowships at the NATO Defense College (Italy), Kent University (UK), Abo Academy (Finland) and the Australian National University.

I have published extensively on Afghanistan, European Union, international law, especially human rights, humanitarian law and international criminal law, and gender-related subjects.
