Personal profile

Research interests

Annick Pijnenburg is a PhD researcher at the International Victimology Institute of Tilburg University. She has an interdisciplinary background, combining social sciences (BA) and law (LLB, LLM), with a strong focus on international human rights law. Annick has previously worked at various international and non-governmental organisations, including the EU Fundamental Rights Agency and the Council of Europe.

Annick's doctoral research project is called "At the frontiers of State responsibility". It examines the responsibility of States under international law for human rights violations that occur as a result of policies whereby a State cooperates with one or more other States to prevent migrants, including refugees, from reaching its territory (e.g. the EU-Turkey deal). The project is thus located at the intersection of international human rights law, refugee law and the law of State responsibility.
