As a Max Weber Fellow, Daniëlle will be working on a two-year project on the internal and external contestations of the open internet order. In the first year, she will explore the securitization of internet content in the European Union as a legitimation strategy for increased regulation. In the second year, she will trace the success of Russia and China in developing competitive internet governance regimes. Furthermore, she is one of the investigators in a CIVICA and Horizon 2020-funded research project on digital trade integration. In this project, researchers from Bocconi University, the European University Institute, the Hertie School, and the London School of Economics and Political Science work together to develop a database and index on digital trade restrictions.Expertise for Teaching and Mentoring of Ph.D. Researchers Daniëlle has teaching experience at the B.A. and M.A. level in substantive courses on internet governance, quantitative methodology, qualitative methodology, and thesis supervision at the Hertie School and Radboud University.
