The Amsterdam Center for International Law welcomes Kate Clark as a junior external researcher.
Kate Clark gained her degrees in law from the universities of London (LLB 2010) and Amsterdam (LLM 2013). Since 2013 she has been Head of Research for the Nuhanovic Foundation, which studies, reports on and finances litigation for reparations for victims of war crimes and conflict-related collateral damage. She established the Foundation’s comprehensive database on reparations and has authored or contributed to the several reports published by the foundation. She has also authored book chapters for publications by Springer and Intersentia. She has been a guest lecturer at the International Masterclasses on War Crimes run by the Geoffrey Nice Foundation. Alongside her legal work she is also a concert flutist and teacher at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
Kate's PhD Topic, which began in 2016, is entitled Responsibility for making reparations to victims of War Crimes and war-related collateral damage. It will explain the principles underlying the existing international legal structures for attributing responsibility for war reparations, examine their efficacy, and identify weaknesses and lacunas in the system. It will explore possible further applications of the existing provisions as well as the implications of historic and domestic mechanisms for strengthening or expanding them.
