Elizabeth Stanley is a Reader in Criminology and a Rutherford Discovery Fellow at the Institute of Criminology, Victoria University of Wellington, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Her research focuses on state crime, human rights, detention, transitional justice and social justice. She has published widely on these issues with regard to events in New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Timor-Leste, West Papua and the UK. Her publications include ‘Torture, Truth and Justice’, ‘State Crime and Resistance’ (with Jude McCulloch), and ‘The Road to Hell: State Violence against Children in Post War NZ’. The latter explores the violence against children in state-run institutions, its long-term legacy, and the ways in which state authorities have shut down ‘just’ responses to victims/survivors. She is currently working on an edited book, ‘Human Rights and Incarceration’.
