Rebecca has a range of research interests but has recently focussed on collective rights and class action procedures, engaging with theoretical and legal aspects, public and private rights, and domestic and cross border enforcement matters.
Rebecca is completing a book 'Collective Rights and Collective Action in Europe’, under publication contract with Hart/Bloomsbury. The book examines collective rights and procedures in the European Union and selected member states.
Rebecca’s expertise and research concerns all aspects of rights arising under European Union law, as well as domestic human rights and constitutional law, all of which are directly relevant to the Brexit referendum and subsequent and future events.
