About this Speaker

Sasie is the Lecturer in Criminology at the Faculty of Law, Crime & Justice, University of Winchester, and a Subject External Examiner for the New College of the Humanities. She is currently a member of the British Society of Criminology Learning and Teaching Network, Member of the Women, Crime and Criminal Justice Network (part of British Society of Criminology), and few other Societies.

Throughout her 13 years in academia, both in Malaysia and in England, she develops an interest in organised crime (mainly human trafficking), reintegration of victims, their families and the traffickers families, policing of transnational crime, comparative criminal justice and criminal law, human rights, and gender issues in Southeast Asia.

Currently, apart from developing a new course on Modern Slavery and working on few articles, Sasie is also working on a monographs book series on the life of sex trafficking victims and their experiences after being trafficked. This includes the experience of victims' families during the reintegration process. To do so, she employs field experiments in developing countries as well as looking at the issues of migrants smuggling and anti-slavery law in various countries and analysing them. She has also adopted various methodologies in her data collection with a different group of respondents, which was not only the victims but also their families and the members of NGOs.

The book is based on her Ph.D. thesis which she had defended successfully Sociology, Social Policy, and Criminology at the University of Southampton.
