Personal information

Luigi Corrias is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy of Law at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He studied International and European Law (2002) and Philosophy of Law (with distinction, 2004) at Tilburg University and holds a PhD in the Philosophy of Law (2010) from the same institution. He was a visiting scholar at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Citizenship and Minorities (CIRCEM), University of Ottawa, Canada (February 2006), and at the School of International Relations, University of St Andrews, Scotland (October – December 2015).

His research falls broadly within the field of the philosophy of international law. In particular, he focuses on philosophical issues pertaining to international criminal law, European integration and constitutional theory. Dr. Corrias draws especially on authors within the phenomenological tradition (e.g. Merleau-Ponty, Arendt, Lefort and Waldenfels) to develop an alternative approach to more traditional theories of law and politics. He is the author of The Passivity of Law: Competence and Constitution in the European Court of Justice (Springer, 2011), for which the Netherlands Association for Philosophy of Law awarded him the Prize for the Best Dissertation in Legal Philosophy in the Netherlands and Belgium in 2009-10. His articles appeared in such journals as the Canadian Journal of Law & Jurisprudence, the European Law Journal and Ratio Juris. He is currently engaged in an on-going research project on humanity and dehumanization in international law.

Dr. Corrias is the secretary of the board of the Netherlands Association for Philosophy of Law and member of the editorial board of the Netherlands Journal of Legal Philosophy.
