Europa institute welcomes 2 new Meijers grant recipients
We are very happy to announce that two candidates of the Europa Institute won the Meijers PhD grant of 2018. Both PhD-students will perform highly topical research into different areas of EU law for the coming four years.
Barbora Budinská’s research focuses on how the Court of Justice of the European Union shall reconcile the independence and the discretion of the European Central Bank as a supreme supervisory authority with fundamental rights protection.
Kristel van Kruisbergen’s research is on the principle of mutual trust and the respect for the rule of law in the European Union. Various cooperation mechanisms in the European Union are based on the principle of mutual trust. Yet, when there is a breakdown of the rule of law in one of the Member States this could affect EU cooperation on the basis of mutual trust. Kristel will examine whether the principle of mutual trust leaves (sufficient) room to safeguard the respect for the rule of law in the Member States.
