Sarah Scott Ford is a PhD fellow at the iCourts Centre of Excellence for International Courts, at the University of Copenhagen. She has an interdisciplinary background in human rights and the sociology of law. Her PhD project is about refugee status determination in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and the institutional aspects of asylum law. Sarah is driven by a curiosity about how refugee law evolves, in particular on the role of human rights law in asylum adjudication and the perceptions of the many legal actors involved in asylum adjudication. As a focus, her project will explore the dynamic usages of different refugee protection statuses.
