Nik de Boer starts research on divergent fundamental right standards in the EU

After Chris Koedooder and Maarten Hillebrandt, Nik de Boer is the third Ph.D. fellow to join ACELG in 2012. From September 2012 onwards he will pursue his research on divergent fundamental right standards between the EU Member States and the question of how such divergences should be addressed at the EU level. His project is supervised by Prof. Deirdre Curtin and Prof. Leonard Besselink.

Nik holds an LLM degree in Legal Research from Utrecht University (cum laude). Prior to finishing his LLM, Nik obtained a bachelor in law and a bachelor in philosophy from Utrecht University (both cum laude). In his bachelor studies, Nik spent a year at King’s College, University of Cambridge, where he studied jurisprudence and comparative law. During his studies he also was an editor of the Dutch law journal Ars Aequi, and worked as a student-assistant at Utrecht University’s Institute for Legal Theory. In addition, he spent six months as an intern at the Permanent Mission of the Netherlands to the United Nations in New York.
