Research

Gareth Davies participates in the research programme ‘Boundaries of Law’

His research concerns primarily the division of powers between the EU and Member States, particularly in the context of economic integration. He has written on the internal market, subsidiarity, the preliminary reference procedure, and the balancing of interests in economic law. As part of a VIDI project funded by the Netherlands Scientific Organisation from 2010-2015 he examined the constitutional and policy implications of PPM regulation within the EU. He is currently a co-leader of a Norface funded project, TransJudFare, on the impact of the European Court of Justice on national welfare policies. He also participates in the Amsterdam Global Change Institute, and has written on the law and policy of geoengineering (climate manipulation).

He welcomes applications for external PhD research in his fields of interest, and is also available to supervise PhDs via the ACCESS Europe part-time PhD programme (see accesseurope.org)
