Personal profile

Research interests

Jassi is an AHRC funded PhD candidate in International Law at the University of Bristol, where she is currently exploring the experiences of girl child soldiers in conflict (focusing on the Sri Lankan and Ugandan wars). Using postcolonial feminism and critical race theory as its theoretical framework, her thesis explores the social and cultural constructions of girlhood in existing gender and war narratives, and how these narratives have influenced, and manifest in, international law. Through a feminist critical discourse analysis, supported closely by empirical case studies in both Sri Lanka and Uganda, her project analyses the lived-realities and experiences of girl soldiers in these conflicts, and resultantly the safeguards offered to them by international human rights law. She is also co-founder and convenor of the Gender and Feminism Reading Group, and also on the teaching team of LLB Constitutional Rights.
