"Complementarity and Public Views on Overlapping Domestic and International Courts"

Kelebogile Zvobgo is a Provost's Fellow in the Social Sciences at the University of Southern California, where she recently defended her Ph.D. in Political Science and International Relations. Beginning in fall 2021, she will be an Assistant Professor of Government at William & Mary

Her research broadly engages questions in human rights, transitional justice, and international law. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in the International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Human RightsPS: Political Science & Politics, and Journal of Political Science Education, as well as in Foreign Policy and The Washington Post. Her primary research focuses on quasi-judicial bodies that have proliferated around the globe to fill the gaps left by domestic and international law and courts. Like courts, these accountability mechanisms collect statements from individuals who have been harmed by state or non-state actors, conduct an investigation, and enjoin appropriate reparative actions. Thus far, her work in this research stream has extended to truth commissions and international development banks' compliance mechanisms.
