Julia Eckert is Professor for Political Anthropology at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and co-editor of ‘Anthropological Theory’. Her research interests are the transnationalisation of legal norms; the anthropology of crime and punishment; changing notions of responsibility and liability; security and citizenship. In her current research she explores the temporal and spatial dimensions of conflicting narratives of legal responsibility, and their implication for the delineations of polities, membership and mutual obligation.
