Fields of interest

My primary research interest is the role of courts in political processes and judicial procedures as a mode of solving political conflicts. In the past, this interest has mainly focussed on the Court of Justice of the European Union. My current research centres mostly around the use of litigation by interest groups and private companies. Here, I am interested in two questions. First: What makes some  interest groups or companies more likely to go to court than others? And second: Are court proceedings a sensible way to solve conflicts, and how do they relate to other modes of conflict resolution?
