Amalie Giødesen Thystrup is a Postdoc with the Centre for Enterprise Liability (CEVIA), Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. Her postdoctoral research examines the extraterritorial effect of anti-corruption in a transnational context, and implications for shipping. The project will fill a lacuna in scholarship and generate new knowledge about countering transnational challenges with different approaches to regulation, and their implications. Spanning international Public Law and International Private Law, the research draws on Global Governance, International Trade Law, Economic Sanctions, Supply Chains, and Maritime, branching into other issues areas, such as data and financial services.

Her main areas of research include Global Governance, International Lawmaking, International Trade Law, WTO Law, Trade in Services, Investments, Sanctions, Anti-Corruption, Transportation, Sustainability, Maritime Law, and International Private Law. She is admitted to the New York Bar, Esq. PhD, LL.M and BA.jur. from University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Law. LL.M from Benjamin N Cardozo School of Law.

Amalie was awarded the PhD Degree in March 2018 based on her dissertation "Governing Trade in Services - Transforming Rulemaking and Trade Integration" which explores the relationship between plurilateral negotiations on trade in services and the multilateral trading system, challenging the understanding of regionalism and contributing to shaping agendas for governing trade in services by analyzing rulemaking and trade integration, including pressing issue areas such as electronic commerce and data flows. Methodologically, the research draws on a law in context approach to legal-empirical research, contributing to the understanding of the processes of trade negotiations when shaping trade regimes.
