Dr. Haezreena is a Criminologist and a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Law, University Malaya. She has vast experience as a litigator in the Malaysian courts and was also a former Teaching Fellow at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. She is thrilled to be part of the UM team and enjoy disseminating knowledge and contributing her ideas to the field of law and criminology.
Dr. Haezreena has attended numerous seminars and conferences on international war crimes, human rights, human trafficking and sexual violence. She is guided by the works of Michael Foucalt who addresses the relationship between power and knowledge, and theorists such as Sandra Walklate and Nils Christie who believes that crime, offenders and victims are socially constructed.
She describes herself as a post-colonial theorist and a socio-legal scholar who thrives to uphold human rights and justice without fear or favour. Using her legal background as her forefront and her criminological knowledge, she strives to understand the fabrics of the society and make sense of the problems and dilemma faced by individuals from all walks of life.
She is against all forms of violence, discrimination and oppression, and believes that communication is vital to achieving positive results. Her specialization includes; human trafficking, crime, criminology, victimology, gender, human rights, international crimes, and criminal justice.
