Dr Spamers’ research interests are in the intersection between law and mental health. She is particularly interested in mental health in context of the criminal justice system and the multidisciplinary approach required to coordinate a best practice response to mental health issues in criminal law, policing, corrections and the health system. An overarching goal of her work is determining how criminal law and criminal justice policy can be utilised to ensure that human rights obligations are realised.
Marozane’s approach to research is based on the view that law does not operate in a vacuum and that the legitimacy of the criminal justice system can only be ensured if legislation and policy is evidence-based. Her studies and research combine criminal law and criminology, criminal procedure, human rights law, international law, medical law, and the regulation of policing and corrections.
