Julian Dederke

Julian Dederke (M.Sc.), PhD candidate at the Center for Comparative and International Studies at ETH Zurich, will be visiting iCourts from 1 August – 31 October 2018.

Julian’s current work focuses on the public perception and media attention for the Court of Justice of the EU. During his PhD project at ETH Zurich he collected empirical data on newspaper coverage of more than 4,300 CJEU decisions in European newspapers, including Austrian, British, Danish, German, French, Irish, and a Swedish newspaper. With help of data on newspaper coverage, the content of news articles, and CJEU press releases Julian investigates the salience and public perception of court decisions in the media. The data provides numerous opportunities for application to a wide range of research questions in the fields of judicial politics in the EU, the public authority and perception of the CJEU as an international court, and the interplay of courts and society in general.

Julian has taught classes in European Integration and International Relations on Bachelor and Master level. His latest publication concerns the role of EU member states as amici curiae in procedures before the ECJ: Dederke, J., & Naurin, D. (2017). ‘Friends of the Court?
