Petra Bárd has been awarded the Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowship
Petra Bárd, Associate Professor at the Department of Criminology, has been awarded the prestigious Fernand Braudel Senior Fellowship, and will conduct research at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence between September 2021 and June 2022.

During her fellowship she will explore how the principles of mutual recognition and mutual trust in the field of EU criminal justice are affected by the rule of law crises in some of the EU Member States. In her research she will put an emphasis on the role of courts at the different levels of the EU’s system of multi-level constitutionalism. Also, she will explore the limits of the judiciary in attaching consequences to rule of law backsliding and in preventing the proliferation of individual rights infringements, including violations of the right to a fair trial in cross-border criminal cases. 

During her stay at the EUI, she will be co-teaching two courses related to the rule of law.
