Alina provided a short introduction:

I started to pave my path in law by pursuing a Bachelor of Laws at University of Bucharest, Romania. Further, I followed a Master of Laws in International and European Public Law – Human Rights track at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, due to my interest in Public International Law. My first Master’s Programme was a catalyst in the decision to follow a Master of Science in Victimology and Criminal Justice at Tilburg University, the Netherlands.

I am currently in the process of finalizing my Joint Thesis focusing on the “Protection afforded to asylum seekers on Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting related grounds: a review of the theory and practice of Europe.

Besides my academic achievements, I have hand-on experience at both domestic and international levels in Public International Law, International Criminal Law and International Human Rights Law.

My areas of interest include, inter alia, International Courts and Tribunals, Victims’ Rights in international and regional spheres, Gender Dimensions under International Criminal and Human Rights Law, Terrorism.
