Biography

Pascale Reinke

Ph.D Student


Before coming to Cambridge I studied psychology with a special emphasis on psychology and law, criminology and sexual medicine at the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel in Germany.

My PhD focuses on vulnerable witnesses, more specifically victims of human trafficking, and how they are supported when giving testimony. I am especially interested in the contact between victims and the police. Therefore, I analyse police investigative interviews with victims of human trafficking carried out in accordance with the Achieving Best Evidence guidelines issued by the Ministry of Justice.

The PhD is being supervised by Dr. Katrin Müller-Johnson.

In support of my studies at the Institute of Criminology I have been awarded the following scholarships: an ESRC Studentship (University fees and Colleges fees at the Home/ EU rate) as well as a PhD fellowship granted by the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes).
