Hi, I’m Ingrid Leijten. I work as an assistant professor of constitutional and administrative law at Leiden University. My research focuses on the protection of fundamental rights and I have a particular interest in economic and social rights.
I am fascinated by the internationalization and constitutionalization of public law. My work deals with the role of courts, the obligations of lawmakers and the tasks of executives in relation to these developments.
Besides teaching and researching in Leiden, I am a deputy judge at the Rotterdam District Court. I also am part of the editorial board of the Nederlands Tijdschrift voor de Mensenrechten (Dutch Journal of Human Rights), a guest professor at the Friedrich Alexander University and a member of the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen-Nuremberg. I host the fundamental rights podcast Ons goed recht.
