Biography

Edit Frenyó holds a J.D. from the University of Szeged (Hungary) and an LL.M. from Boston College Law School (USA). She received her S.J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center (USA). Her research interests include transnational family law, labour migration, human rights, welfare and social policy.

As a Max Weber Fellow her work will investigate how transnational care arrangements reorganize European households, create semi-formal welfare systems and challenge state-centric normative frameworks of social protection and policy. She is interested in how migrant care-work links not only households, but also welfare states in previously un-theorized ways, demonstrating a form of European integration and norm-generation from below.

Prior to joining the EUI Edit was a Steinberg postdoctoral Fellow in Migration Law and Policy, at McGill University Faculty of Law (2018-2020) and a postdoctoral Global Fellow at NYU Law (2020-2021). She is currently a research associate in the Canadian team of the ‘Vulnerabilities Under the Global Protection Regime (VULNER)’ research project, a part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 initiative.

Expertise for Teaching and Mentoring of Ph.D. Researchers
Edit has both graduate and undergraduate teaching experience. She co-taught the Family Law course at Georgetown, with her dissertation supervisor Prof. Judith C. Areen (2012; 2013). She served as a regular guest lecturer on the human rights of migrants and foundations of jurisprudence, at McGill Law. In the Spring of 2021, she taught an undergraduate political science course on ‘Minority Politics’ at McDaniel College Budapest (the European Campus of McDaniel College, MD, U.S.A.).
