Research interests

Adrienne's thesis critically examines the development of Union citizenship rights in the European Union and its relationship with fundamental rights protection in the Court of Justice of the EU, with a particular focus on the effects of the Eurocrisis and increasing Euroscepticism on its decisions in these areas. Her research interests extend to the relationship citizenship has with identity, its disparities at the European Union and national level, legal and political theories of citizenship in the transnational global realm and legitimacy and solidarity in the EU.
