Marija is associate professor and a deputy direct at the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law'. She wrote her PhD thesis ‘Legitimacy and European Private Law’ at the European University Institute in Florence.

Marija’s current research focuses on the critique of functionalist institutional design of postnational market governance and, in particular, the epistemic and democratic constraints presented by such a design. For instance, in the article ‘ Internal Market Rationality, Private Law and the Direction of the Union’ (European Law Journal) Marija has argued that the EU functionalist market design has created a deep bias in the way policy-relevant knowledge is produced in the EU, propelling the de-politicisation of the EU. In ‘ The way we do Europe: Subsidiarity and the Substantive Democratic Deficit’ (European Law Journal), Marija explores the democratic consequences of the EU functionalist institutional design.

In July 2015, Marija was awarded a personal research grant VENI by the Dutch Grant Authority (NWO) for her project titled 'BRINGING DEMOCRACY TO MARKETS: TTIP and the Politics of Knowledge in Postnational Governance'. In this project, Marija addresses the relation between knowledge, democracy and market integration on the background of the current trade negotiations between the EU and the US.

Marija's most recent publications are:

Contesting Austerity: On the Limits of the EU ‘Knowledge’ Governance (Journal of Law and Society, 1/2017).

Making transnational markets: the institutional politics behind the TTIP ('Europe and the World: A Law Review’, University College London Press, 1/2017).
