Academic Interests

I am currently working on a PhD project on accountability mechanisms of international organizations in cases where the rights of individuals are violated. The overarching research question is whether the accountability mechanisms of international organizations that are available to individuals are sufficient.


  • Introductory course for new law students
  • Public International Law (as part of the Norwegian Master of Laws degree)
  • EEA Law (as part of the Norwegian Master of Laws degree)
  • Problem-based learning course on European and Public International Law
