Her main research areas encompass law enforcement cooperation in Asia, North America, the EU and Australasia, comparative constitutional and human rights law with a focus on terrorism legislation and the policing of art crime.  

Examples of research funding:

Saskia is currently working on a number of articles as a result of her research as a Leverhulme Fellow at the University of Leeds. This research focuses on UK involvement in EU police and justice cooperation and in particular the possible benefits and downsides of a UK opt-out with regard to the Lisbon Protocol 36.

She is also currently co-authoring a monograph with Dr Timothy Legrand (Griffith University) Extreme Events – Legal and Policy Challenges in Managing Crises (Ashgate, forthcoming 2014). This book is the result of her research fellowship at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security, Griffith University, Australia.
