Job Vacancy: PhD position at Utrecht University School of Law

About the author(s):

Katharine Fortin

Katharine Fortin is an Associate Professor at Utrecht University where she teaches IHL and IHRL. Before joining Utrecht University, she worked at the ICTY, ICC and Norton Rose Fulbright. She is the author of The Accountability of Armed Groups under Human Rights Law (Oxford University Press, 2017) which won the 2018 Lieber Prize. She has written widely about the framework of law that applies to armed groups in non-international armed conflicts and is one of the editors of the Armed Groups and International Law blog.

The Utrecht School of Law will be appointing a PhD researcher to engage in research on the exercise of jurisdiction with respect to the internet. The research examines whether the traditional international legal framework of jurisdiction – which emphasizes territorial or personal links to the regulating entity – can accommodate recent technological developments in cyberspace which de-emphasize the importance of territoriality.

This research, which is funded by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), is part of a broader project on the extraterritorial jurisdiction, funded by NOW and the European Research Council and headed by Dr. Cedric Ryngaert.
