02 Jul New Position at the University of Copenhagen
I am honoured and delighted to announce that I have been appointed Professor of International Law and Security at the University of Copenhagen. The position is based in the Centre for Military Studies (CMS), which is part of the Department of Political Science, and will involve working closely with the Ministry of Defence and the various Danish political parties on international-law issues. I am looking forward to getting to know my new colleagues in the CMS, which is led by Henrik Ø. Breitenbauch and his deputy, Kristian Søby Kristensen.
As part of my position, I will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Law, particularly its superb iCourts Centre for Excellence, run by Mikael Rask Madsen. I am fortunate to already have a number of friends in the Centre, including (but not limited to!) Mikkel Jarle Christensen, Astrid Kjeldgaard-Pedersen, and Jakob v. H. Holtermann.
I will miss living in Amsterdam, and I have made a number of good friends at Amsterdam Law School over the past three years. I want to particularly thank Ingo Venzke, the director of the vibrant Amsterdam Center for International Law, for being such a great colleague and friend. Stay tuned for our edited book “Situating Contingency in International Law,” which should be out from OUP in early 2021!
