New Visitor at iCourts - Niamh Nic Shuibhne

Niamh Nic Shuibhne is Professor of European Union Law at the University of Edinburgh. She is a Visiting Professor at the College of Europe (Bruges) and Joint Editor of the European Law Review. Her current research focuses on EU free movement case law. Her 2013 monograph - The Coherence of EU Free Movement Law: Constitutional Responsibility and the Court of Justice (OUP) - examines how the Court of Justice develops and applies framework principles that underpin the definition of a restriction of the free movement rights conferred by the EU Treaty. Other recent work examines the role played by evidence and proof when measuring the success (or otherwise) of the justification arguments that Member States submit in order to protect national public interest concerns. Niamh has also published widely on the free movement of persons and the legal regulation of EU citizenship. With her colleague Jo Shaw, she acted as Joint General Rapporteur for the topic 'Union Citizenship: Development, Impact and Challenges' at the FIDE Congress held in Copenhagen May 2014.
