Profile picture of M. (Marina) Fortuna, Dr

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen. Prior to this I was a PhD researcher in the TRICI-Law project where with fellow tricky-ers we researched the interpretation of customary international law (CIL). In my PhD thesis I have shown that international courts and tribunals engage in interpretation of customary international law in their practice and, to this end, use methods similar to those found in treaty interpretation.

Generally, my research focuses on the practice of international courts (ICs) and quasi-judicial bodies (QJBs), especially that of the ICJ, human rights courts and quasi-judicial bodies and international criminal tribunals, which I examine from the perspective of different topics from general international law. The topics I have researched include impartiality of judges for expressed opinions on legal matters, the use of customary international law in ICs and QJBs, methods of treaty interpretation and methods of customary international law interpretation in ICs and QJBs. I am also interested in topics that lie at the intersection of either psychology and international law and ethics and international law.
