Biography

Petra Bárd is Associate Professor at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Faculty of Law, Budapest; Research Affiliate at the Central European University’s (CEU) Legal Studies Department, Vienna; and at the CEU Democracy Institute, Budapest; and Visiting Professor at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. In her research and scholarly publications – including several monographs – she targets issues at the intersection of the rule of law, fundamental rights, their European enforcement mechanism, and EU criminal cooperation. She is a regular author of studies commissioned by EU institutions on various subjects, such as the rule of law, minorities, disinformation and propaganda, media pluralism, strategic litigation against public participation (SLAPP), hate crimes, and victims' rights. She participates in several EU-funded projects including the H2020 project titled RECONNECT on the Rule of Law and democracy, and the STREAM project on strengthening trust in the European Criminal Justice Area through mutual recognition and the streamlined application of the European Arrest Warrant.
During her fellowship Petra Bárd will explore how the principles of mutual recognition and mutual trust in the field of EU criminal justice are affected by the rule of law crises in some of the EU Member States. In her research she will put an emphasis on the role of courts at the different levels of the EU’s legal system of multi-level constitutionalism. Also, she will revisit the limits of the judiciary in attaching consequences to rule of law backsliding and in preventing the proliferation of individual rights infringements, including violations of the right to a fair trial in cross-border criminal cases.
During her stay at the EUI, she will be co-teaching two courses related to the rule of law with EUI Professor Gábor Halmai.
