On 7 January, Nicolaos Strapatsas successfully defended his doctoral thesis entitled 'The Supreme International Crime: Aggression Under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court' at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. The external examiner was Professor Claus Kreß of the University of Köln. The internal examiner was Dr Noam Lubell. The thesis is the first scholarly study of the definition of aggression since the adoption by the Review Conference of the International Criminal Court, in June 2010, of amendments to the Rome Statute.
Nick is also a graduate of the first cohort of the LLM programme at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. He is currently working as an international legal adviser to the Jordanian National Centre for Human Rights in Amman.
Congratulations, Nick.
