Zinaida Miller (@ZinaidaMiller) is Assistant Professor of International Law and Human Rights at the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University, where she researches and teaches human rights, transitional justice, international criminal law, and public international law. Her current work, including “The Injustices of Time: Rights, Redistribution, Race and Responsibility” (forthcoming, Columbia Human Rights Law Review), examines temporality, international law, and accountability in relation to long-term racial and ethnic inequalities as well as recent conflict and atrocity. Anti-Impunity and the Human Rights Agenda (co-edited with Karen Engle and Dennis Davis, Cambridge University Press) explored the increasing emphasis on punishment and prosecution in the human rights movement, particularly in states emerging from conflict.

Prior articles focused on the exclusion of economic issues from transitional justice (“Effects of Invisibility: In Search of the ‘Economic’ in Transitional Justice”, International Journal of Transitional Justice), the influence of international law and humanitarian policy on Palestinian governance (“Perils of Parity: Palestine’s Permanent Transition”, Cornell International Law Journal), and the role of temporality in the law of war (“Time, Law, & Judgment”, Temple International & Comparative Law Journal). Miller serves on the Advisory Council of Harvard Law School’s Institute for Global Law & Policy and was co-Chair of the American Society of International Law’s Transitional Justice and Rule of Law Interest Group from 2017 to 2020. She earned her B.A. from Brown University, J.D. from Harvard Law School, and Masters in Law and Diplomacy and Ph.D. in International Relations from The Fletcher School at Tufts University.
