Professor van Sliedregt has published extensively in the field of international and European criminal law. Her research interests lie in comparative research into principles of law, such as the presumption of innocence, the principle of culpability, and dual criminality (in extradition law). In recent research, funded by the Netherlands Research Council, Van Sliedregt looks into the possibility of a (partial) harmonization of substantive international criminal law (www.commoncivility.org).
