Congratulations to ICHR PhD candidate and Doctoral Fellow, Amina Adanan, who has been awarded the EJ Phelan Fellowship in International Law by the National University of Ireland.

The Fellowship is funded by a special bequest from the late Mr. and Mrs. Edward J Phelan and is intended to encourage and support a doctoral candidate of proven academic excellence towards a doctoral degree in any area of International Law, in a constituent university of the NUI. The award is named after distinguished diplomat Edward J. Phelan, one of the first international civil servants at the International Labour Organization, who later became the ILO’s fourth Director and first Director-General.

Amina's research project,‘The Transitional Nature of Universal Jurisdiction’, provides a comprehensive analysis of the rationale for the application of universal jurisdiction to international crimes.
