David Jenkins is an Associate Professor at the University of Copenhagen School of Law and a member (and former co-director) of its Centre for Comparative and European Constitutional Studies (CECS). His area of specialization is comparative constitutional law, with a current focus on the interplay between counter-terrorism measures, individual rights, and constitutional forms. He holds a JD and two masters degrees in American history and political thought, and his doctorate in law from McGill University's Institute of Comparative Law in Montreal. His work has been cited by the Supreme Court of Canada and in the legislative debates of the British House of Lords, and he has given invited oral and written testimony to the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee of the British House of Commons.
Recent publications include a co-edited anthology of essays for Oxford University Press, The Long Decade: How 9/11 Changed the Law (with Amanda Jacobsen and Anders Henriksen), to which he contributed two chapters; the chapter "Procedural Fairness and Judicial Review of Counter-Terrorism Measures" in Judges as Guardians of Constitutionalism and Human Rights (edited by Martin Scheinin, Helle Krunke, and Marina Aksenova, published by Edward Elgar); and the chapter "The handling and disclosure of sensitive intelligence: closed material procedures and constitutional change in the 'Five Eyes' nations" in the Routledge Handbook of Law and Terrorism (edited by Genevieve Lennon and Clive Walker, published by Routledge).
