Marija has acquired her PhD from the European University Institute in Florence, with a thesis Legitimacy and European Private Law.

    Marija has held appointments as a Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Nantes, Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Law School, Boston University and the Max Planck Insitute for Comparative Law in Hamburg.

    Research

    Marija's research agenda revolves around the relationship between law and social change.  In her VENI research project, funded by the Dutch Grant Authority NWO, and titled 'BRINGING DEMOCRACY TO MARKETS: TTIP and the Politics of Knowledge in Postnational Governance', Marija explores the co-constututive relationship between institutions (democratic or not), laws and expert knowledge in the re-shaping of global political economy. At present, Marija is completing a manuscript within this project, titled 'Legal Imaginaries and Collective Self-Determination'. In this book, she explores the question how the ways in which we imagine law – that is both (social) reality on which law aims to intervene as well as law’s capacity to do so – shape our sense of collective agency.

    More recently, Marija has turned her attention to the possible contributions of law, and private law in particular, to the socio-ecological transformation. Specifically, in this research she fucuses on the question how private law could nurture socially and environmentally non-extractive economic practices.
