About Ester Herlin-Karnell

My main research interests lie in the area of EU constitutional law, EU security regulation, EU market regulation, human rights and political theory. I was previously a Professor of EU Constitutional Law and Justice and a University Research Chair at VU University Amsterdam where I was the co-director of the Centre for European Legal Studies (2009-2019). I hold a DPhil in law from Somerville, College Oxford, an LLM from King’s College London and a Jur Kand from Stockholm University.

In recent years, I have been a visiting scholar at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in Lund, Law Faculty Uppsala University, an Emile Noël Fellow at New York University, Michigan University Law School, European University Institute, WZB Berlin Centre for Global Constitutionalism, the Global Trust Centre Tel Aviv University, Haifa University Minerva Centre for the Rule of Law under Extreme Conditions and at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law.

I have written three monographs: The Constitutional Structure of the European Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and the Right to Justification (Hart Studies in Security & Justice 2019)Market Manipulation and Insider Trading (Hart 2019 with N Ryder) and The Constitutional Dimension of European Criminal Law (Hart, Modern Studies in European Law 2012).

I have also co-edited several edited volumes and special journal issues. Most recently I co-edited Constitutionalism Justified: Rainer Forst in Discourse (with Matthias Klatt and assistant editor Hector Morales Zúniga, Oxford University Press 2019). This volume analyzes Rainer Forst’s theory of the right to justification from legal-philosophical and constitutional-theoretical perspectives.

I am currently working on several new projects, inter alia, an edited volume (with Enzo Rossi) entitled 'From constitutionalism to war: the public uses of coercion and force' (with particular reference to Arthur Ripstein’s new work on Kant and the law of war), forthcoming with Oxford University Press.
