Her dissertation focuses on the role and contribution of UN mandated commissions of inquiry to peace building, human rights protection and transitional justice.  In 2013-2014, Isabelle was a visiting doctoral researcher at NYU.

Isabelle is now based in Sri Lanka where she works on international law and human rights issues. Previously, she has interned at the prosecutor’s office at the Khmer Rouge tribunal in Phnom Penh, and at several UN agencies and NGOs in France and Ghana.

She holds a master’s degree in human rights and humanitarian law from Panthéon-Assas, an advanced research diploma from the Institut des Hautes Etudes Internationales, and a certificate in criminology from the Institut de Criminologie de Paris.
