2009-2014PhD Fellow, Department of Law, Aarhus University (maternity leave April 2009-April 2010 and March 2012-March 2013)The thesis (written in English) is entitled "The CJEU and the ECtHR: Building a European Area of Protection of Fundamental Rights?". On the basis of legal theory on transnational legal pluralism it develops an analytical and normative framework for examining the judicial dialogue between the EU Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Based hereon it is demonstrated that the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty and the consequent elevation of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights to primary EU law has complicated rather than improved on the relationship between the two courts and the protection of fundamental rights in Europe. The thesis was assessed by a committee comprised of professor Birgitte Egelund Olsen, Aarhus University, professor Xavier Groussot, Lunds University, Sweden, and associate professor Cathryn Costello, University of Oxford
