Ingo Venzke is Associate Professor at the Department of International and European Law and at the Amsterdam Center for International Law. His research forms part of the project on ' the architecture of postnational rulemaking' and his teaching includes LL.M. courses on International Trade Law and International Dispute Settlement.

Ingo has been a Visiting Professor at Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), Visiting Senior Fellow at the National University of Singapore (NUS), a Hauser Research Scholar at New York University (NYU) and a Visiting Scholar at the Cegla Center for the Interdisciplinary Research of the Law, Tel Aviv University. He wrote his PhD at the University of Frankfurt while working as a Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg (MPIL).

He is an Editor-in-Chief of the Leiden Journal of International Law.


Ingo's work at the moment focuses on the many roles that international courts play in global governance. More specifically, he examines how they contest and accommodate authority in a normative pluriverse.

Ingo also contributes to the research cluster on International Public Authority (anchored at the MPIL) and to the research project on ASEAN Integration Trough Law (based at NUS).
