Dr Jue Jiang is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at SOAS, University of London. She received her LLB from Southwest University of Political Science and Law in China and her LLM and PhD in Law from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Dr Jiang’s research interests lie mainly in criminal law and criminal justice, human rights, women’s rights and gender equality, and political-legal development in China. After being awarded a PhD, she worked for both domestic grassroots and international human rights NGOs for four years. Since 2017, with a plan to return academia, she assumed several visiting positions for research and teaching at McGill University, Shantou University, New York University and Lund University. Her experience in academia and NGO practices, in China and various other jurisdictions, provoked her thoughts for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship project, "The rationale and ramification of sentencing and punishment in China through a gender perspective".

Her postdoctoral research with the Fellowship looks, on the one hand, into cases sentenced under the crime of rape in China’s Criminal Law via case studies and qualitative analysis of judgments, particularly the reasoning provided by the judges in justifying the verdicts. On the other hand, her research aims at undertaking an empirical inquiry into civil society activism in China in the cases concerning gender and sexual identity.
