The European Precariat: A study on the free movement of workers in the era of precarious employment.

Under the supervision of Professor Christa Tobler, Daniel’s doctoral research aims to investigate the precise value of the principle of solidarity in the European Union and its relationship with Union Citizenship. Additionally, the research will involve an analysis as to the extent which EU law limits the freedom of Member States to organize their welfare systems, and the practical implications arising from this.
