    Nataša Nedeski is Assistant Professor of Public International Law.

    Research profile

    Nedeski's work has focused on general international law, and shared responsibility in international law in particular. She has co-authored the Guiding Principles on Shared Responsibility in International Law, which seek to provide guidance to judges, practitioners and academics when confronted with legal questions of shared responsibility of states and/or international organizations, for instance in relation to climate change or joint military operations. She is currently finalizing her first monograph entitled ‘Shared Obligations in International Law’, which is under contract to be published by Cambridge University Press.

    Her research interests include the international law of obligations, the law of international responsibility, international organizations law, human rights law, international environmental law and (strategic) litigation before domestic and international courts. She is currently interested in further exploring the challenges of a (strategic) climate change case before an international court, in particular questions of causation and the clarification and allocation of primary international law obligations incumbent on states to combat climate change.

    Teaching profile

    Nataša Nedeski has taught general courses on public international law as well as more specialized courses on international responsibility, international dispute settlement and fundamental rights. She has experience designing and coordinating courses at the bachelor and master level, supervising LL.B. and LL.M. theses and coaching the University of Amsterdam team for the Jessup International Law Moot Court competition. She is Academic Coordinator of the PhD Education Programme, which trains doctoral candidates at the University of Amsterdam in legal theory and legal research skills.
