I research in the areas of international law, human rights law and international technology law.

International law & International Human Rights Law

I write on interpretational and jurisdictional issues before international courts with a keen eye on comparing the practice of different international courts. I am particularly interested in African human rights law and the case law of the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights.

International technology law

Within the area of international technology law, I have written on the following topics:

  • human rights-based design and implementation of AI decision-making
  • international law & cybersecurity standards
  • human rights assessment of the use of new technologies, including issues of encryption, and digital ID systems
  • how international law-like standards are created and used to assess the legality and legitimacy of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) work in the domain names’ spacehow human rights law may inform the design of Internet standards


I am currently working on the project “Making the hidden visible: Co-designing for public values in standards-making and governance” funded by the Dutch Research Council investigating the role of public values in the design of cybersecurity policy norms and standards for IoT.
