Marija Bartl, researcher within the project 'The Architecture of Postnational Rulemaking' and assistant professor at CSECL, was awarded a personal grant by the NWO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, to do research into how TTIP affects democratic processes.
The grant will allow her for the next three years to pursue her research project 'Bringing Democracy to Markets: TTIP and the Politics of Knowledge in Postnational Governance' in which she analyses the TransatlanticTrade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) from the perspective of 'de-democratization' of market regulation beyond the state with the aim to develop tools on how to minimize negative effects.
Marija Bartl was successful in the highly contested VENI scheme for young researches by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. Grants were awarded to 161 out of more than one thousand applicants. Marija is the only successful applicant at the University of Amsterdam's Faculty of Law this year. She is the third Architecture project member after Christina Eckes and Joana Mendes to receive a VENI grant.
