Mathilde Worch Jensen is a PhD candidate in Criminal Law at the Centre for Public Regulation and Administration (CORA), Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. Her research, funded by the Victims Fund Denmark, explores the law of attempt and complicity from a victim-centred perspective. She researches across the fields of criminal law and human rights, in particular with respect to the legal rights afforded to victims of violence, e.g. the positive obligations set out by the European Court of Human Rights. Mathilde’s PhD project is supervised by Prof. Trine Baumbach.
Prior to undertaking the PhD Mathilde worked as a legal adviser at the Danish Institute for Human Rights. Subsequently she took on a role as legal independent consultant on a project funded by the Oak Foundation Denmark, on criminalisation of psychological violence.
Mathilde sits on the Board of the non-profit organisation Digitalt Ansvar which works to achieve up-to-date legal regulation and efficient investigation of online criminal offences. Since 2014 Mathilde has been a member of the National Observatory on Violence against Women, Denmark.
She teaches courses in Criminal Law and Procedure (LL.B. level), in addition to supervising master's theses.
