Dr Gregor Maučec is Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at New university, Faculty of Government and European Studies and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at iCourts – the Centre of Excellence for International Courts at the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Law. He is an expert in international criminal law and human rights law. Previously, Gregor was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow in Law at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy) and a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Law, Kyoto University (Japan). He received his PhD in Public International Law from the University of Maribor (Slovenia). His research and writing has focused on the international judicial function, and particularly how it is understood and carried out by the judges of different international adjudicative bodies; international judicial behaviour and decision-making; protection of minorities and indigenous populations through international courts; discrimination, fair trial, criminal sentencing and the death penalty; various transitional justice issues; and how states and non-state actors have pushed back against international courts and tribunals. Gregor is currently working on his Marie Curie project which explores the ways in which the judges of the International Criminal Court perceive the Court’s judicial function and how this, in turn, impacts their legal practices. During his time at the Faculty of Law, University of Maribor, he taught on the Public International Law course at the undergraduate level and related master courses. He also guest lectured at the University of Copenhagen, New University, University of Florence and University College London.
