Benjamin Meeusen is a PhD research fellow within the research group of Constitutional Law. He holds a Master of Laws from Ghent University and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Sciences from the University of Antwerp.
The research project of Benjamin focusses on the intensity of review in the jurisprudence of the Belgian Constitutional Court (BeCC) and in particular on the frequently used criterion of “manifest unreasonableness”. It relies on a comparative legal study of judicial scrutiny in the USA, UK, Germany and France, as well as on a comprehensive qualitative analysis of the case-law of the BeCC.
Benjamin is co-editor of the Belgian Constitutional Law Blog.
