Dr. Jasmina Mačkić is Assistant Professor at the Europa Institute of Leiden Law School.
Jasmina obtained her LL.M. in criminal law and criminal procedure and her LL.M in European law from Leiden Law School. She also obtained her PhD in the field of European human rights law from the same school. The research was funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, which had awarded Jasmina a Mozaïek-subsidy in 2010. Her PhD thesis concerns the issue of proving discriminatory violence before the European Court of Human Rights. Parts of her research were already published in: Jasmina Mačkić, ‘The European Court of Human Rights and Discriminatory Violence Complaints’ in Jennifer Schweppe and Mark Austin Walters (eds), The Globalization of Hate. Internationalizing Hate Crime? (OUP 2016) 233, and in Jasmina Mačkić, ‘Het Onzichtbare Bewijzen. Over de Mogelijkheden om de Bewijslast te Verschuiven van Klager naar Verwerende Staat in Zaken van Discriminatoir Geweld voor het Europees Hof voor de Rechten van de Mens’ (2017) 42 NTM/NJCM-Bull 477.
In the past, Jasmina also used to work for the Council of State of the Netherlands and the University of Applied Sciences in Leiden. During her PhD research period, she conducted a two-month internship in Strasbourg at the Council of Europe’s Roma Support Team, a body within the Council of Europe dedicated to a variety of issues concerning the Roma. Additionally, she stayed for five months as a Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor in 2013. At a couple of occasions, she lectured during the Summer School ‘Law on the Bosphorus. Current Trends in Human Rights Law’ (Istanbul University, Faculty of Law).
Jasmina’s research focuses on the law of evidence and fact-finding mainly in the context of the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. Additionally, her research zeroes in on non-discrimination issues in EU law and European human rights law.
