IMG_6271Several members of TARN were present at the PhD defence of Florin Coman-Kund at Maastricht University.

Florin successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled European Union Agencies as global actors: a legal study of the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Border Management Agency (Frontex) and Europol, supervised by Ellen Vos and Andrea Ott (Maastricht University). The assessment committee was composed of Bruno de Witte (Maastricht University), Esther Versluis (Maastricht University), Michelle Everson (Birkbeck, University College London), Edoardo Chiti (La Tuscia University), Kirsten Schmalenbach (Salzburg University) and Oswald Jansen (Maastricht University). The thesis is a first systematic and detailed study of the international dimension of EU agencies. It entails both a desk research and empirical research.

Within TARN, this topic will be further explored in a conference to be held in June 2017. More information and a call for papers on this topic will appear in due time on this website.‚Äč
