Research area

My research project examines the reach of hybridisation of remedies in the area of European regulatory private law. The European Union is exercising an increasing influence on national remedies. The new interplay between the European level and the national level can be termed as hybridisation. Hybridisation describes a composite legal order, in which both the European and the national legal order play a role, leading to a “merged European-national” enforcement system. In my research, I will focus on four different enforcement categories which give rise to different combinations and different degrees of hybridisation: “administrative”, “judicial”, “individual” and “collective”. In order to evaluate the changes resulting from the growing European influence on remedies, I will consider the experiences of the Member States with varying enforcement models.
