Dr Iryna Marchuk is an associate professor of international and criminal law. Her main research interests lie in the fields of international criminal law, public international law and international dispute settlement. Iryna earned her PhD degree from the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen in January 2011. During her PhD studies, she was a visiting scholar at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge (2009-2010). Iryna was previously affiliated with a number of international courts, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the Special Court for Sierra Leone and the International Criminal Court. Iryna’s book The Fundamental Concept of Crime in International Criminal Law: A Comparative Law Analysis (Springer 2013) gives particular thought to the catalyzing impact of the criminal law theory developed in major world legal systems upon the crystallization of the substantive part of international criminal law. She has published on the subject of powerful states’ approaches to international law, international litigation arising out of the armed conflict and the theory of international criminal law. Iryna’s scholarly work appeared in the world’s leading journals, such as Yale J Int’l Affairs, Melb. J Int’l L, Vanderbilt J Transn’l L, and J Int’l Const. L.

She is responsible for the graduate level course International Criminal Law and Procedure, which introduces fundamentals of both substantive and procedural law in international criminal courts and tribunals with the major focus on the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Iryna supervises students who wish to write their master theses or bachelor assignments in the fields of international criminal law, comparative criminal law, EU criminal law, Danish criminal law and public international law.
