dr. K. (Nadia) Banteka

Assistant Professor 

Tilburg Law School


Dr. Nadia Banteka is an Assistant Professor in International Law at the International Victimology Institute Tilburg (INTERVICT), Tilburg Law School. Nadia's research interests concentrate in Public International Law, International Criminal Law, and Social Sciences Methods. Nadia also has a distinct interest in International Law issues concerning Greece.

Nadia is particularly interested in how these fields intersect and how interdisciplinary study can improve our understanding of international legal phenomena. In her research, Nadia seeks to answer three main questions: (1) Which actors contribute to International Law making, and how can we measure this contribution?; (2) How can interdisciplinary methods improve the way we understand and address existing International Law and International (Criminal) Justice problems?; and (3) How can interdisciplinary analysis improve the interaction between victims of crime and the International Criminal Justice process? Nadia is a legal quantitative scholar, who aims to improve the methodological rigor of International Law, while using innovative interdisciplinary methods to solve existing problems in the application of International (Criminal) Justice.

Nadia draws on several disciplines including International Law, International Relations, Legal and Political Philosophy, Victimology, and Network Theory. Nadia's work has a doctrinal scope combined with strong methodological underpinnings while mantaining a victims' oriented perspective. Nadia's current and earlier work has focused on providing an innovative analytical framework and quantitative set of tools to improve our understanding of contemporary International Law making. Nadia incorporates best practices through interdisciplinary methods that can provide tangible and quantifiable results and predictions for various International Law phenomena. Finally, Nadia is applying these empirical legal analysis and methodological undertakings in current research regarding the interaction between victims of crime and international criminal justice processes through her position as a researcher in the NWO funded VIDI project "A waste of time or no time to waste? Assessing the impact of international reparative justice procedures?"
