Bérénice Schramm is a PhD candidate at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID, Switzerland) whose work focuses on the International Court of Justice's jurisprudence as it uncovers in various instances the strong performative character of the legal discourse, using epistomology and philosophy as methods of enquiry and finding inspiration in other non-classical approaches such as feminism, marxism or post-colonialist studies. In addition to her doctoral studies, she has also been a teaching assistant at the Graduate Institute from 2009 until september 2013, as well as, on a regular basis, a junior legal officer at the International Labour Organization's Administrative Tribunal, and an implementation officer at the Antipersonnel Landmine Convention's Implementation Support Unit. She plans to defend her thesis in early 2014 and engage afterwards in an academic career where she will be able to pursue her original paths of research.
