School of Diplomacy Welcomes Zinaida Miller to Faculty  

Zinaida Miller HZinaida Miller will join the School of Diplomacy this fall, where she will teach Public International Law, Human Rights Law and Policy, and International Human Rights.

Miller is well-versed in the field of international law. She received her Ph.D. and Master’s degree from the Fletcher School at Tufts University, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. Miller has served as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Global Governance for the Institute for the Study of International Development at McGill University, a Senior and Doctoral Fellow for the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law, and a Visiting Fellow in International Studies at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University.

“We are very happy that Dr. Miller has decided to join our faculty next fall,” said Dr. Benjamin Goldfrank, Department Chair. “She has an excellent publication record, great teaching experience, and extensive work experience on human rights issues, including stints in Israel, the West Bank, and South Africa.”

Miller’s research has focused on themes of post-conflict reconstruction, transitional justice, human rights, and the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, among others. Articles she has published include “Perils of Parity: Palestine’s Permanent Transition,” (Cornell International Law Journal, 2014); “Effects of Invisibility: In Search of the ‘Economic’ in Transitional Justice,” (The International Journal of Transitional Justice, 2008); and “Settling with History: A Hybrid Commission of Inquiry for Israel/Palestine,” (Harvard Human Rights Journal, 2007). A forthcoming collection, Anti-Impunity and the Human Rights Agenda (Cambridge University Press), co-edited with Karen Engle and Dennis Davis, explores the increasing influence of criminal law and punishment on human rights and transitional justice.

Miller gained teaching experience through her work as an Adjunct Professor of Public International Law at the New England School of Law, and as a Visiting Instructor and Consultant for the International Human Rights Clinic at Harvard Law School. Miller has also worked with the Association for Civil Rights in Jerusalem, the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation in Cape Town, and Human Rights Watch in New York.
