Personal profile


Dr Wade was educated in Norway, the UK and Germany before she began working for the Department of Criminology of the University of Göttingen and then the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law both in Germany. She joined the University of Birmingham in 2011.

Research interests

Dr Wade’s interests relate strongly to the reality of cross-border criminal justice cooperation and the impact of criminal justice measures on people’s lives. As a consequence the notion of EU citizenship, the development of a European Public Prosecutor’s Office and the impact of Counter-terrorism policy are areas of specific focus.
