Research Expertise and Interests

Her research interests lie primarily in the field public law, both national and international. She is currently doing research on fundamental rights in a national as well as in a European constitutional context and how these fundamental rights are communicated between these levels. Her latest articles have focused on the constitutional dimension of the right to health and the social rights of illegal immigrants in the European Union. Her current research projects deal with integrity rights and social security law respectively. Although being quite different in comparison, these projects have some points in common. One is the constitutional dimension of the national legal order being tested and challenged by international law and/or EU law and how the power of law-making is fragmentized between several constitutional actors. Another point is the possibility for the individual to be able to access to and be part of the realization of his/her stated rights. Anna-Sara is also currently writing text books in constitutional law, social rights law and EU law, all three to be published in 2012.
