About the Author

Dr Silvia Croydon is Hakubi Research Fellow at Kyoto University, where she spends her time researching human rights in the country, as well as in East Asia more broadly. Her particular focus is criminal rights issues, and in addition to police detention, she has published works in both Japanese and English on topics such as victim impact statements, the death penalty and the introduction of lay judges to Japan. She has also written on the prospects for the existing gap in Asia with regards to a regional human rights mechanism to be filled. Each of these projects has been supported by evidence gathered during her extensive fieldwork in the region, undertaken whilst in her current position, as well as during a two-year Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Tokyo, and during her doctoral studies at the University of Oxford, which were completed in 2010.
