Personal profile

Research interests

Eva conducts Ph.D. research on the historical and current meaning of the representation clause (Art. 50) of the Dutch Constitution, which reads: 'De Staten-Generaal vertegenwoordigen het gehele Nederlandse volk' (translation: 'The States-General [i.e. parliament] represent the entire Dutch people').

Eva adopts a hermeneutic approach to describe how the meaning of the representation clause has shifted through time as a result of reinterpretation. By doing so, she aims to obtain insight in the way in which informal constitutional change takes place in the Netherlands. Ultimately, her goal is to provide a more profound and contemporary understanding of parliamentary representation, from which political practice may benefit.

Other topics of research interest include referenda, the rule of law, and fundamental rights.
