When crimes become international: Towards an empirical model for the qualification of non-state actors committing crimes against humanity.
Her research, supervised by Professor Carsten Stahn and Professor Larissa van den Herik, focuses on crimes against humanity. It aims to develop the legal framework for the qualification of non-state actors that engage in the commission of crimes against humanity. The research takes an empirical approach and draws also on socio-legal studies on groups and organizations in order to develop a set of criteria to better address the distinction between organizations perpetrating crimes against humanity and those engaging only in domestic offences.
Teodora obtained her Bachelor’s degree in law at the University of Bucharest and her LL.M. degree in Public International Law at Leiden University. Alongside the LL.M., she also participated in the research-oriented Talent Programme of the Graduate School of Legal Studies. Between October 2012 and October 2014, Teodora worked at the International Criminal Court, as intern and afterwards as assistant legal officer, in the Judicial Division. Since September 2014, Teodora is Managing Editor of the Leiden Journal of International Law.
