Rebecca Schmidt obtained a PhD from the European University Institute and an LLM in International and Legal Studies from New York University. Before starting her current position, she held a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at University College Dublin, and a one-year postdoctoral fellowship within the Transnational Business Governance Interactions Project (at Osgoode Hall Law School and at SUNY Buffalo). She was also visiting fellow in the GlobalTrust Project at Tel Aviv University. In her research Rebecca examines a key feature of globalisation, the rise of regulation beyond the state. She focuses on the emergence of transnational regulatory cooperation between public and private actors, and in particular the interplay between expertise-driven private regulation and more traditional political authority in multi-level transnational regulatory networks.
