Profile

Friederycke Haijer is a PhD Candidate at Utrecht University. She is currently a visiting researcher at Princeton University.

Friederycke studied European and German law at the University of Würzburg (Germany, 2003) and obtained her LL.M in International and European Law at the University of Groningen in 2005. In 2008, she participated in the U.S. foreign policy training programme of George Washington University (USA).

Friederycke started her professional career with HOM/Aim for Human Rights, an NGO advising multinational corporations about their human rights obligations (2005-2006). She subsequently worked for Justice and Peace, an NGO that advocates internationally for human rights (2006-2010), working in particular on human rights issues in India and Pakistan. From 2010-2014, she was the senior staff attorney for international crimes at the District Court of The Hague, where she worked on several high profile criminal and universal jurisdiction cases (genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and terrorism). From 2010-2015 she was a member of the board of the Dutch section of the International Commission of Jurists (NJCM). From 2012-2016, she was a member of the board of editors of Militair Straf- en Tuchtrecht, a quarterly-updated commentary on military criminal justice, that serves as the standard reference for Dutch military officers. 

Friederycke's PhD research is being supervised by Prof. Dr. C. Ryngaert as part of the UNIJURIS project. It concerns the implementation and enforcement of foreign corruption legislation: 

Bribery is a widespread phenomenon in international business transactions, which raises serious moral and political concerns, undermines good governance and economic development, and distorts international competitive conditions. Legislation on foreign corruption has reached a high level of global harmonization. This means that prosecutions for bribery are possible around the world, even when the alleged acts did not take place within the territory of the country where the prosecution takes place. In practice however, there are only few countries that prosecute corruption when it did not take place within their territory. This uneven enforcement of foreign corruption legislation leads to unfair competition, free rider behaviour by companies as well as impunity. Friederycke's research looks into the question how this unevenness can be explained. 

Friederycke is a member of the Utrecht Centre for Accountability and Liability Law (UCALL).

  • Public International Law RGBUIER002

The Public International Law course aims to introduce the students to the most important general tenets of international law. These are the following: the nature and structure of international law; the sources of international law, with particular attention to treaty law; the subjects of international law, with particular attention to the individual (including human rights and international criminal law); jurisdiction and immunities; state responsibility and the responsibility of international organizations; the international law of peace and security and the role of the United Nations therein; peaceful settlement of disputes; international economic law, and the relationship between international law and national law.

We will study the societal and political context in which international law functions, and through which the law has adapted and evolved over time. Plenty of attention will be paid to the social context of international law, with seminars in which the students are taught to apply the legal framework to current and pressing issues and debates.

  • Research and Thesis Trajectory Public International Law RGMUSCIIPM

The thesis crowns the master program. It is an individual legal research project carried out under the supervision of a lecturer.
