Two prestigious Marie Curie Individual Fellowships for the Law Faculty

2 February 2017

Two Faculty of Law researchers have received prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships. Individual Fellowships give researchers a chance to enhance their career development and prospects by working abroad.

Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius

Dr Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius of the Institute for Information Law (IViR) will work on his project at the Free University of Brussels, within the Research Group on Law, Science, Technology & Society (host prof. Paul De Hert). His project is entitled 'How should automated profiling be regulated?' The project’s overarching research question is: considering the rationales for the rules in different sectors, is additional regulation needed, and if so: how should profiling be regulated?

Marta Morvillo

Dr Marta Morvillo from the University of Bologna will come to the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG) to work on her project 'The Constitutional Place of Expertise' (hosts prof. Christina Eckes and Dr Maria Weimer). The project aims at developing a constitutionally informed theory of expertise within the EU framework, addresing the question of reconciling technical and democratic legitimacy in a supranational polity from a constitutional standpoint. It also explores the potential of constitutional principles such as participation, transparency and rational administrative decisionmaking as triggers of dialectic learning processes between courts and decisionmakers.
