Beáta Bakó graduated from the Faculty of Law of Pázmány University Budapest in 2015. She completed an LL.M. in German Law at the University of Münster in 2017. She completed her PhD exam at the University of Münster in 2020.

In her dissertation, Beáta examined the possible alternatives to the Article 7 TEU mechanism concerning the enforcement of the founding values of the European Union, focusing on the cases of Hungary and Poland as examples.

As a Max Weber Fellow at the EUI, she will extend her research field to the future aspects of the same problem by analysing how constitutionally established ‘illiberal’ systems could be healed in a new wave of ‘transitional justice’ within the frames of EU law.

During her postgraduate studies, Beáta was a visiting student at the EUI (2018) and a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg (2017) and at the University of Warsaw (2018-2019).

Beáta also holds an M.A. degree in communication and media studies from the ELTE Budapest (2013). In 2017, she co-founded the independent Hungarian online newspaper, of which she has since been co-editor-in-chief.
