Dr. Gijs Verbossen

Senior Researcher

Justice guarantees fair relations between members of a given society. As such, access to justice requires constant review and updating to keep up with social developments. To do so, we need data about justice needs and innovative ways to deliver justice.

Dr. Gijs Verbossen holds a PhD in Politics and International Relations from the La Trobe University School of Social Science. His academic research is on citizenship, institutions, and economic reform in authoritarian countries, with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa region.

At HiiL, Gijs makes sure that data about access to and delivery of justice is gathered in accordance with best-practice methods and local contexts. He draws on his expertise of interdisciplinary research methodology and his fieldwork in Egypt, Palestinian Territories, Iraq, Lebanon, and other countries.
