Visiting Researcher Zilin Hao

We are currently hosting visiting researcher Zilin Hao, PhD researcher at Wuhan University, in January-June for a six-months research stay. She is working on her PhD thesis (Exclusive jurisdiction for cross-border litigation) and got LLM and LLB in Law (China University of Political Science and Law).

She presents herself: “My research interests focus on the fields of private international law and international civil procedure. Before I came to Rotterdam, I learned a lot from the publications of Prof. Xandra Kramer. Thus, I appreciate Professor Kramer, who integrated me into her research group. During my stay, Xandra Kramer and her team gave me warm welcome and care. Most
importantly, by participating biweekly academic seminar with professional
teammates, I can consider my thesis question from the comparative perspective of
European private international law and civil procedure law in a straight way.
I cherish this rare opportunity for an academic visit and look forward to learning more in the coming months.”

Carlota Ucín has developed a training site for disseminating her work on public interest litigation, human rights and argumentative theory. The purpose of this project is to be able to transfer this knowledge and help practitioners and judges to better legitimate their actions by supporting their claims and decisions from a human rights perspective.

Therefore, the site has two main sections: a blog and a training platform where courses online will be delivered. The first online activity was the presentation of her book (Juicio a la desigualdad. La defensa de los derechos sociales a través del proceso. Inequality on trial. The defence of social rights through the process, Marcial Pons, Madrid, 2021).

Although the site is for now only available in Spanish it may also be translated into English in the near future.
