Research activities

Her doctoral thesis, carried out with an F.R.S.-FNRS doctoral grant under the supervision of Prof. Emmanuelle Bribosia and Prof. Arnaud Van Waeyenberge, focused on the impact of the new European economic governance on the “Union de droit”.

Her postdoctoral research focuses on the use of economic and monetary tools to protect the rule of law in the European Union.

Her research activities thus relate mainly to Economic and Monetary Union, fundamental rights, European litigation, European constitutional law, but not exclusively. Louise is also interested in other areas of European and international law, in particular European and international systems for the protection of fundamental rights, European Union external relations law and migration policy.

Louise currently teaches the course “Judicial Protection in the European Union”.

Previously, she was an assistant for the courses of European Union Law and Economic and Intellectual Property Law (2016-2018) and Introduction to Law (2020). She was then responsible for various courses at the Université Libre de Bruxlles, HEC Paris and the Catholic University of Lille.
