New visitor at iCourts - Signe Rehling Larsen

7 May - 30 August 2018

Signe Rehling LarsenSigne Rehling Larsen is currently undertaking her doctoral studies in law at the London School of Economics and Political Science under the supervision of Martin Loughlin and Michael Wilkinson. Signe’s research interests are constitutional theory and comparative constitutional law, the theory of the federation and comparative federalism, the history and theory of European integration and EU law, and the history and theory of democracy. Her doctoral work is a study of the constitutional nature of the European Union in light of the recent crises of the European project such as the Eurozone crisis and the rise of authoritarianism in Poland and Hungary. In her work, Signe draws not only on legal scholarship but also on political- and constitutional theory, intellectual history and historical scholarship.

Signe holds an MA in Politics from the New School for Social Research (2014) and a BA in Philosophy from the University of Copenhagen (2011). Before her graduate studies, Signe undertook a one-year programme in liberal arts at Bard College Berlin (2012).

In the academic year 2018-2019, Signe will be a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. During the fellowship, Signe intends to develop her new research project, which is concerned with questions relating to the constitutional identities of the European Union and its Member States and on the question whether—and on what basis—the European Union has the authority to intervene in the constitutional developments of its Member States.
