Biography

 

Rebecca has a law degree from the University of Heidelberg (Germany) and obtained an LL.M. in International and Legal Studies from the New York University (USA). She conducted her doctoral research at the European University Institute in Florence (Italy) where she defended her dissertation on 'Public Private Cooperation in Transnational Regulation' in March 2015. Before coming to UCD, she was a visiting fellow at the GlobalTrust Project at Tel Aviv University and a TBGI Postdoctoral Fellow at the Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy at the State University of New York at Buffalo and at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. In her research Rebecca examines a key feature of globalization, the rise of regulation beyond the state. She focuses on the emergence of transnational regulatory cooperation between public and private actors, and in particular the interplay between expertise-driven private regulation and more traditional political authority in multi-level transnational regulatory networks.
