Dr. Iveta Alexovičová works as Assistant Professor of International Economic Law at Maastricht University, Department of International and European Law, focusing predominantly on international trade and investment law. She is a fellow of the Institute for Globalisation and International Regulation (IGIR), member of the Ius Commune Research School, a non-resident fellow of the World Trade Institute (WTI). She acts as the Law Faculty representative in the Curriculum Committee of the University College Maastricht and a member of the Society of International Economic Law (SIEL).
Iveta holds a Master degree in Law from Comenius University (Bratislava, Slovakia); an advanced Master degree in Comparative, European and International Law (Magister Iuris Communis) from Maastricht University (Maastricht, Netherlands); a postgraduate degree JUDr. (doctor of law) from Charle’s University (Prague, Czech Republic); and a PhD degree from Maastricht University (Maastricht, Netherlands).
Iveta’s previous working experience includes public service in Slovakia and legal consultancy in the private sector in Slovakia and in the Netherlands. Since joining Maastricht University in 2004, Iveta has been conducting research in combination with lecturing and coaching award-winning teams in several international law moot court competitions. In the past, Iveta coordinated and lectured courses on international trade law, public international law, international development law, European law and lawyers’ skills, all at Maastricht University (Faculty of Law, Faculty of Political Science and University College Maastricht) as well as at Hasselt University in Hasselt, Belgium and EU-China School of Law in Beijing, China.
At present, Iveta’s teaching and research fully focus on international trade and investment law. Iveta coordinates and teaches several courses concerning these two fields. As a member of the international trade and investment research group of the Institute for Globalisation and International Regulation she focuses her research on challenges posed by the limiting effect of international rules regarding trade liberalization and investment protection on the sovereign autonomy of states to pursue important societal objectives, with a special interest in the EU trade and investment policies.
In addition, Iveta has been regularly involved in capacity building activities, research projects and organization of workshops and conferences. She has an active record in various academic citizenship activities, including peer reviewing for leading academic journals and publishers in the two relevant fields, academic journal editing, participation in the assessment of research grant proposals (e.g. by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research), as well as participation in, and frequent chairing of, panels judging the John H. Jackson moot court competition on WTO law, both in the regional and international rounds.
