Hebert's research interests center on gender, human rights, international law, and international organizations, with a geographic emphasis on sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia and a thematic focus on gender-based violence.
Hebert’s book, Gender & Human Rights in a Global, Mobile Era (Routledge, 2022), delves into feminist debates surrounding the relationship between gender and human rights through engaging feminist perspectives through the lens of human trafficking. The book centers on analyses of domestic servitude, commercial sex, and labor trafficking by military contractors, and is grounded in intersectional feminist cosmopolitanism and feminist theorizing on vulnerability, precarity, and ethical interdependence, with the objective of contributing to feminist theorizing on the building of solidarities across differences. In addition to her book, her work has appeared in the Journal of Human Rights, The International Journal of Human Rights, the Journal of Human Trafficking, the Journal of Gender Studies, and Human Rights & Human Welfare, and the edited volumes Human Trafficking & Human Rights: Rethinking Contemporary Slavery (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2011) and Making Gender, Making War: Violence, Military, and Peacekeeping Practices (Routledge, 2011).
Hebert is also co-chair of Oxy’s Kahane United Nations Program Advisory Committee and is an affiliated faculty member of the Gender, Women, & Sexuality Studies minor.
