Mathilde Worch Jensen


Mathilde is a PhD candidate in Criminal Law at the Centre for Public Regulation and Administration (CORA). Her research, funded by the Victims Fund Denmark, explores the law of attempt and complicity from a victim-centered perspective. She researches across the fields of criminal law and human rights, in particular with respect to the legal rights afforded to victims of violence, e.g. the positive obligations set out by the European Court of Human Rights.

Prior to undertaking the PhD Mathilde worked as a legal adviser at the Danish Institute for Human Rights. Subsequently she took on a role as legal independent consultant on a project funded by the Oak Foundation Denmark, on criminalisation of psychological violence.

Mathilde is on the boards of the not-for-profit organisations Digitalt Ansvar and Exitcirklen. Since 2014 Mathilde has been a member of the National Observatory on Violence against Women, Denmark.

She teaches courses in Criminal Law and Procedure (LL.B. level), in addition to supervising master's theses.
