Research activities
Marieke conducts research within the research programme Boundaries of Law. Her research addresses the politics of criminalizing transnational use of force. She moreover researches the increasing tensions within the international criminal justice project with regard to the discrepancy between what the International Criminal Court tries to accomplish and what it in reality effectuates in the experience of victims of international crimes.

Marieke’s research focuses on the underlying problematique of differing and contradicting assumptions and rationales that undermine the international criminal justice project, and on the choices that this requires in order to improve the project into one that in a sustainable manner contributes to the important goal of seeking justice for international crimes.
