Jelena Plamenac is a Research Fellow at the Centre for International Law Research and Policy. She holds a Ph.D. in law from the University of Geneva, and an LL.M. from the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights. Her research explores legal pluralism in conflict and post-conflict contexts, with a focus on the protection of civilians and transitional justice mechanisms, judicial diplomacy, and the intersections between international law, justice, power and knowledge.

Previously, Dr. Plamenac was a manager of the Lebanon Resource Desk for International Humanitarian Law at Diakonia, providing legal advice and strengthening capacity of humanitarian organisations and other key actors responding to armed conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa region, to enhance and enforce the protection of civilians in armed conflict.

Dr. Plamenac has also served as a Situation Analyst at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (‘ICC’). She was responsible for legal research and analysis of alleged violations of international criminal law in situations under the Prosecutor’s preliminary examination. During her time at the ICC, she was a member of the Working Groups on the Prosecutor’s Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Crimes and Policy on Children. Prior to joining the ICC, she worked at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for several years on criminal trial cases. Her legal work focused on analysing potential evidence of international crimes in relation to detainee abuse committed in the context of non-international armed conflict.
