Jasper Krommendijk (1985) is Professor of human rights and Director of the Research Centre for State and Law (SteR). His teaching and research focus on human rights, the rule of law and effective legal protection. He is particularly interested in the interaction between international human rights (UN, ECHR and EU) and the Dutch legal order. Krommendijk combines legal-dogmatic research with empirical research to develop a good perspective on the law in practice. Since 2022, he holds the Jean Monnet Chair on the Rule of Law in the national and EU legal orders (EURoLNAT), as part of which he and his students, for example, provide guest lectures on the rule of law in primary schools. In 2023, he received an NWO SGW XS grant for a project on national courts’ engagement with decisions of international human rights courts and committees.

He obtained his PhD at Maastricht University in 2014 with a dissertation on the impact and effectiveness of recommendations by UN human rights committees. Since 2014, he has been an assistant/ associate professor of international and European law at Radboud University. From 2017-2021, Krommendijk worked on the NWO-funded research project ‘It takes two to tango. The preliminary reference dance between the Court of Justice of the European Union and national courts’.

Krommendijk is Chair of the Netherlands Network of Human Rights Research (NNHRR) and is also a member of the Bezwaarcommissie of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and a deputy judge in the District Court of East Brabant. He is also a member of the editorial boards of three human rights journals (Nederlands Tijdschrift voor de Mensenrechten, EHRC Updates and the Netherlands Quarterly for Human Rights).
