Samantha Daniels is a PhD-candidate with the department Constitutional and Administrative law of the University of Amsterdam. She writes her thesis under the supervision of professor Adrienne de Moor - van Vugt.
Samantha studies crisis management within the Dutch and European financial sector. The financial crisis of 2008 showed the need for a responsive framework that meets the need for speed of efficient and reductive crisis effect-policy on one hand, and the legal framework of European and national institutions on the other. Being designed to prevent another financial crisis, the implementation of European and Dutch financial crisis management has taken a big step forward since 2012. In her thesis, Samantha explores this new framework, thereby analyzing the emergency powers of financial supervisors and relating them to constitutional principles such as the rule of law, ministrial responsibility and judicial review. The intervention powers of the Dutch Central Bank, the European Central Bank and the Single Resolution Mechanism are central in this research.
Samantha graduated in 2009 from the University of Amsterdam with a degree in Constitutional and Administrative law. After her graduation, she became a lecturer in Constitutional law and European history of law and an associate with Van Diepen van der Kroef Advocaten in Amsterdam. In september 2011 she started working on her PhD thesis full time.
