Angelika Nussberger, a German law professor and former vice-president of the European Court of Human Rights, has been named the new judge of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Born in 1963 in Munich, she has represented Germany at the European Court of Human Rights since 2011.
She was appointed Vice-President of the Court in Strasbourg in 2017.
Previously, she was the Deputy Rector of the University of Cologne.
She will thus succeed Giovani Grasso in the Constitutional Court of BiH.
All this is happening in the midst of the crisis over the Constitutional Court, given the opposition of politicians from Republika Srpska Entity on the presence of foreign judges in that institution.
