Gregor Maučec received a PhD in Law from the University of Maribor.
His doctoral dissertation, titled ‘Legal Dimensions of the Prohibition of Harassment in the Context of Implementation of Relevant EU Norms in the EU Member States – The Cases of United Kingdom and Ireland’ discusses the most recent international, European and national legal and (quasi)judicial solutions highlighting the question of defining harassment as a special type of unlawful discrimination. It looks particularly at British and Irish anti-harassment legislation, policies and case law following the transposition of the core EU non-discrimination directives into these two legal systems.
Prior to joining the EUI, Gregor was a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Law, Kyoto University, where he conducted his research on unlawful discrimination in capital cases.
As a teaching assistant at the Faculty of Law, University of Maribor, he taught on the Public International Law course at the undergraduate level and related master courses, including ‘EU Policies and Law on the Prohibition of Discrimination’ and ‘Diplomatic and Consular Law and EU Foreign Services’.
At the EUI, he will be working on the project which explores the relationship of the right to equality before the law and freedom from discrimination on the one hand and global courts – such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court - on the other.
Gregor’s research and teaching interests revolve around such areas as international and comparative human rights law, discrimination law, the death penalty, international criminal law, transitional justice, and international(ised) courts.
