Dr Iryna Marchuk is an associate professor of criminal law. Her main research interests lie in the fields of international criminal law, comparative criminal law, transnational criminal law and public international law. Iryna earned her PhD degree from the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen in early January 2011. During her PhD studies, she was affiliated as a visiting scholar with the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge. Iryna was previously affiliated with a number of international organizations, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the Special Court for Sierra Leone and most recently with the International Criminal Court. Iryna’s book “The Fundamental Concept of Crime in International Criminal Law: A Comparative Law Analysis” was published by Springer in 2013, in which particular thought has been given 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 is responsible for the graduate level course “International Criminal Law and Procedure”, which introduces fundamentals of substantive and procedural law in international criminal courts and tribunals, such as the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) and the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Iryna supervises students who wish to write their theses in the fields of international criminal law and procedure, comparative criminal law, EU criminal law, Danish criminal law and public international law.
