Research fellow at the International Development Department, University of Birmingham

Sanne Weber is a research fellow at the International Development Department of the University of Birmingham. Her main research interest is transitional justice and gender in Latin America. 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. Her current research project analyses the gendered dynamics of the reintegration of ex-combatants.

Sanne completed her PhD at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (Coventry University). Her PhD research analysed the gendered dynamics of Colombia’s land restitution and reparation process. Previously, she worked as a researcher, gender policy advisor and coordinator for human rights organisations in Guatemala on projects related to gender-sensitive transitional justice and the prevention of violence against women for several years.
