Dr Veronika Fikfak is a Senior Lecturer, Homerton College, University of Cambridge. She holds a Magister Juris and an M.Phil and D.Phil from the University of Oxford. She previously worked at the International Court of Justice, the Law Commission of England and Wales, the European Court of Human Rights and at the UN in Paris.
Dr Fikfak’s research focuses on international human rights institutions, in particular on the European Court of Human Rights. In this context, she is especially interested in the law of remedies for human rights violations. She recently concluded working on a project funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council and the Newton Trust entitled ‘What Price for Human Rights: Compensating human rights violations’. The project used quantitative and qualitative research methods to analyse the jurisprudence of the European Court in order to understand how the European Court of Human Rights determines compensation in human rights claims. The results of the project were published in the European Journal of International Law.
