Research interests

Ms. Kanevskaia is a PhD Candidate at Tilburg Law and Economics Centre (TILEC). Her research focuses on the institutional aspects of international standardization, the interplay between standardization actors, and due process in standard-setting. Her work aims to assess and compare the current practises of institutions developing technology and ICT standards from the perspectives of WTO law, EU and US Competition law and Global Administrative Law, and to analyze Standards Development Organizations and industry consortia as institutions of private governance.

Ms. Kanevskaia is also interested in the topics related to the Technical Barriers to Trade in general, and labelling, economic sanctions and rules of origin in particular.
