Short presentation

I am a doctoral candidate in constitutional law since September, 2021. Within the framework of my research project, I examine the interaction between rules on state of emergency and rules on the right of access to public documents and the freedom of information in several European countries, in order to understand how democracy functions in times of crisis. I am particularly interested in transparency issues, comparative constitutional law, constitutional theory and legal philosophy.
