Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are the normative, epistemological and methodological problems of law, both as a practice and as an academic discipline. On the basis of discussions with lawyers I focus on questions like the unity of legal authority in a multicultural society or a multinational polity like the European Union; the contemporary meaning of concepts like punishment, property, statutes, state and contract; or ethical questions with regard to law.


Back to Basics. Semestrial seminar of 4 x 3 hours (plus 1 hour individual tutorial) on basic questions on law, state, and society, as well as relevant legal disciplines, open exclusively to the PhDs of Tilburg Law School and researchers of similar status. Applications for admission go through the office of the Tilburg Graduate Law School.
