Senior Lecturer / CRN 6 Co-Chair
Cherisse is a sociolegal scholar and researcher. Her diverse teaching and research interests include trafficking in persons, race, gender and development, human rights, criminal law and criminology. Cherisse's research is often focused on the Caribbean region or presents a comparative approach between the Global North and the Global South. This began with her doctoral research which interrogates the campaigns and discourses surrounding trafficking in persons in the Anglophone Caribbean making specific references to aspects of history and culture including sex work and societal perceptions. Before joining academia Cherisse was a legal professional working in both the governmental and non-governmental sectors and she brings this cross-sectoral positionality to her work.
