Current Research Projects

  • The Court of Justice in the Archives:  Through analysis of a justified selection of cases this project will address how can we best demonstrate and evaluate the potential of the Court of Justice archives from a range of disciplinary perspectives (legal history, sociology of European law, EU law) and how can we convey and consider the specificities of this archival holding. More info
