Veronica Corcodel is a team member of the BRIDGE Network.
She is Assistant Professor in European Law at DCU. She holds a PhD from Sciences Po Law School (2015). The main argument of her dissertation is developed in a forthcoming book Modern Law and Otherness: The Dynamics of Inclusion and Exclusion in Comparative Legal Thought (Edward Elgar, 2019). Her areas of interest include critical legal theory, migration, European law and comparative law. She has been a Visiting Scholar at Cornell Law School, the University of Turin and the University of Piemonte Orientale.
Prior to joining the DCU, was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the FOLIE (Forms of Life and Legal Integration in Europe) project at Sciences Po Law School. Her research has explored the ways in which legal arrangements shape (and are shaped by) migrant forms of life. She has focused on the context of the Calais camp, including the alternative housing solutions provided by French authorities to displaced migrants. Her research was conducted in collaboration with the Migration Clinic of Sciences Po Law School, which she co-coordinated. She then was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute, where she investigated the ways in which a certain understanding of the notion of forms of life can be useful for critically approaching the European legal framework of migrants’ detention.
Veronica has teaching experience at both undergraduate and graduate levels, in French and European migration law (clinical course at Sciences Po), Comparative Law and Representations of the non-West (University of Piemonte Orientale, Sciences Po), European Union Law (Sciences Po Toulouse) and Public International Law (Sciences Po Toulouse).
