In her research, she focuses on the various legal instruments – based on child protection law, criminal law and administrative law – that can be employed in this context and she examines to what extent the development of the child and public safety are protected, while respecting the fundamental rights of the child. In the research, traditional legal research methods and empirical legal research methods are combined.
