Jenny joined the University of Copenhagen in September 2020. The objective of her research is to theoretically, and employing an inter-disciplinary approach, analyse the development of Hungarian constitutionalism in the period between 1989-2012. Her PhD research presently focusses significantly on post-colonial theory and identity in European Constitutionalism. The thesis is provisionally entitled: Hungary and the End of Empire(s): The Mnemonics of Constitutionalism, Identity and Statehood (1989-2012). The PhD is supervised by Professor Jan Komárek and forms part of the IMAGINE: European Constitutional Imaginaries: Utopias, Ideologies and the Other project, funded by the ERC Starting Grant, and hosted by the Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts).
