New Marie Curie Fellow at iCourts - Gregor Maučec

The Faculty welcomes Gregor Maučec, who has been employed as a Marie Curie fellow for the period from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2020.

Gregor received his PhD in Public International Law from the University of Maribor. His research interests revolve around such areas as international and comparative human rights law, discrimination law, the death penalty, international criminal law, transitional justice, and international(ised) courts.

As a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at iCourts (1 September 2018 - 31 August 2020), he will be working on the project which explores the ways in which the International Criminal Court (ICC) perceives its judicial function and how this impacts its legal practices. His in-depth empirical examination of judicial deliberations will help identify the ICC’s legitimisation strategies, and will contribute to the iCourts’ research dimension exploring how the ICC’s case law evolves in a new empirical way, thus providing a better understanding of the ICC’s working methods and practices.

Prior to joining iCourts, Gregor was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Law (Kyoto University) and Max Weber Fellow in Law (European University Institute). As a teaching assistant at the Faculty of Law (University of Maribor) he taught on the Public International Law course at the undergraduate level and related master courses, including ‘EU Policies and Law on the Prohibition of Discrimination’ and ‘Diplomatic and Consular Law and EU Foreign Services’.
