  • About

    Irina is a Post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Private Law within the Centre for the Study of European Law. She was awarded a Joint Ph.D. from the University of Copenhagen and the University of Iceland for her thesis on consumer debt and contract law. Irina also holds an LL.M. in Natural Resources and International Environmental Law from the University of Iceland as well as two State Examinations from Germany (Humboldt University, Berlin).

    Her current research focuses on the multi-layered rules on access to housing in cities, where a large influx of people and economic pressures lead to scarce availability of housing. Her broader research interest lies in the role of contract law in processes of privatization and marketization of welfare.

    Irina is also lecturing at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany, where she teaches EU law. Previously, Irina has worked as a researcher at the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection in Germany, as a research assistant to Hans-W. Micklitz (EUI) in the project on European Regulatory Private Law, as a lecturer at the University of Iceland (EU/EEA Law, EU Procedural Law and Access to Justice, EU Environmental Law, and International Economic Law), and as a lawyer at LOGOS Legal Services in Iceland.
