Dr. Elena Kantorowicz-Reznichenko (ESL) receives ‘Journal of International Criminal Justice Prize 2017’

Researcher dr. Elena Kantorowicz-Reznichenko (Erasmus School of Law) has been awarded a Journal of International Criminal Justice Prize 2017 for her article ‘Misidentification of Victims under International Criminal Law: An Attempted Offence?'

Each year, the Journal of International Criminal Justice awards a prize for the best paper published in the Journal by a young scholar. The article is selected by the Editorial Board of the Journal. The prize winner is subsequently invited to attend a public ceremony during which the Prize is awarded. It is practice to invite a distinguished prosecutor, judge or scholar to preside over the ceremony. In recent years, Cuno Tarfusser, Antonio Intelisano, Gherardo Colombo and Carla Del Ponte have been the chief guests on the occasion.

 According to the report that accompanied the announcement, the Editorial Board was particularly impressed by the thoughtful manner in which dr. Kantorowicz-Reznichenko has dealt with this highly relevant (and widely neglected) topic, using a variety of doctrinal pathways including comparative law analysis, which lead her to propose useful and practical advice for ICL practitioners.

Dr. Kantorowicz-Reznichenko is a researcher, lecturer and the academic coordinator of the European Doctorate in Law & Economics (EDLE). Additionally, she is the principle investigator in the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Safety and Security project Perceived Risk of Terrorism and its Implications for (Counter-Terrorism) Communication Strategies
