Andrea Broderick wins Edmond Hustinx prize

The Edmond Hustinx price for Science 2018 has been awarded to Andrea Broderick, researcher at the Faculty of Law. The prize was handed out during Monday’s official opening of the academic year in Maastricht.

Dr. Broderick studied law in Galway and received her PhD at Maastricht University in 2015. She wrote this PhD as Marie Curie Research Fellow in the DREAM (Disability Rights Expanding Accessible Markets) network. She is now assistant professor in the department of International and European Law. In a short time period, Dr. Broderick built up a very good reputation in the field of disability law and the law of equal treatment more in general. She publishes in the major international journals in this field and is in the final stage of editing a casebook on International and European Disability Law to be published with Cambridge University Press. She is also in high demand as a speaker at conferences around Europe and a much-appreciated lecturer in a range of different courses in both Maastricht and Hasselt. The Edmond Hustinx Prize will provide her with vital resources to undertake this research.
