Biography

Eirik Bjorge's fields of teaching and scholarship are public international law and public law. His first book was called The Evolutionary Interpretation of Treaties (OUP 2014), and won the Gold Medal of the King of Norway. His second book was entitled Domestic Application of the ECHR: Courts as Faithful Trustees (OUP 2015). He has also published a translation and expanded version of President Bernard Stirn's Towards a European Public Law (OUP 2017).

He has edited, with Professor Mads Andenas, A Farewell to Fragmentation: Reassertion and Convergence in International Law (CUP 2015) and, with Dr Cameron Miles, Landmark Cases in Public International Law (Hart 2017), and published peer reviewed articles on topics such as the relationship between public law, human rights, international dispute settlement, and public international law, in e.g. Public Law, the Law Quarterly Review, the Cambridge Law Journal, the British Yearbook of International Law, and the International Journal of Constitutional Law (I•CON). He gave the 2018 Bernhardt lecture at Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg.

At the University of Bristol he teaches constitutional rights (administrative law), public international law, and comparative public law. In the past he has taught constitutional law, administrative law, EU law, human rights law, and public international law at the University of Oxford, and he has taught human rights law and EU law at Sciences Po, Paris. He is a fellow of the Academy of Higher Education.

Bjorge was previously the Shaw Foundation Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford and has been a pensionnaire étranger at École normale supérieure, a visiting fellow at Sciences Po and at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg. He has clerked at the Conseil d’État and the European Court of Human Rights.

From November 2018 he is an Academic Fellow of Inner Temple. The Inner Temple’s Academic Fellows Scheme aims to recognize "the outstanding contribution of legal teaching and research of early to mid-career academics"; it also aims to support their research and to build a stronger relationship between the Bar, judiciary, and legal academia.

In addition, he has experience with litigation before international courts and tribunals, such as the International Court of Justice; the European Court of Human Rights; and ICSID, UNCITRAL, PCA, and ICC tribunals.
