dr. Luigi Corrias
(reviews)

Luigi Corrias studied International and European Law (2002) and Philosophy of Law (with distinction, 2004) at Tilburg University and was a PhD-candidate and junior lecturer at the same institution. Since September 2009 he works at VU University Amsterdam as an Assistant Professor of Legal Philosophy. In 2011, the Netherlands Association for Philosophy of Law awarded Luigi Corrias the Prize for the Best Dissertation in Legal Philosophy in the Netherlands and Belgium in 2009-10 for his book The Passivity of Law: Competence and Constitution in The European Body Politic (published by Springer).

His research is primarily concerned with such themes as sovereignty, democracy, constitutionalism and constitutional change, and political representation and community building in European and international (criminal) law. Methodologically, he is interested in combining legal and political philosophy with insights from the phenomenological tradition (e.g. the work of Merleau-Ponty, Lefort and Waldenfels). He has published in the German Law Journal and Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie. He co-edited Humanity across International Law and Biolaw (Cambridge University Press 2014), together with Britta van Beers and Wouter G. Werner.
