Nora Kenan

Intern - trainee

  • Department:
  • Section: Private International Law


Nora Kenan is currently finalizing her bachelor’s degree in International & European Law at the Hague University of Applied Sciences. She has successfully completed her specialization in commercial law as part of her studies and is currently writing her thesis on the topic of human rights protection in bilateral investment treaties. She is particularly passionate about ensuring and developing sufficient protection of human rights in corporate activities. Upon completing her bachelor’s degree, Nora will commence an LL.M. with a focus on globalization and law. 

Nora is born and raised in Norway but carries a half-Lebanese background. She moved to the Netherlands in 2017 to start her bachelor’s degree. Her multi-cultural background inspired her to volunteer for Red Cross Norway, where she became a course instructor for the course Multiculturalism and Integration, alongside with being a refugee guide. Nora sees herself as a world citizen, and highly values the idea of a global and European citizenship built on mutual trust, respect and cooperation. This has laid the foundation for her interest in Private International Law, and she is determined to aid the Asser Institute in its research on matters of Private International Law, particularly by working on the Judgtrust project.
