Jindan-Karena (“Nina”) Mann is as of September a PhD Candidate at ACIL.
Her research forms part of a broader project on “The Outer Limits of Secondary Liability for International Crimes and Serious Human Rights Violations”. Specifically, Nina’s research focuses on a comparative review of tort law, with the goal of defining a broader analytical and evaluative framework for addressing international crimes and grave human rights violations through civil liability mechanisms.
Nina obtained her LLM in International Criminal Law from the University of Amsterdam’s dual program with Columbia Law School in 2016. Before that, she interned at the UN Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals in Arusha, Tanzania, as well as the UN Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Nina is one of three PhD candidates working on the aforementioned research project directed by prof. Göran Sluiter, and is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), by means of a VICI-grant. During her PhD, Nina will work under the supervision of Professors Göran Sluiter and Chantal Mak.
