The research conducted by Janneke Gerards concentrates on judicial review in fundamental rights cases in the pluralist European legal order.

In particular, she examines legal methods of argumentation and interpretation that national and European courts (ECJ, ECtHR) use in solving hard cases on fundamental rights. Her main research goal is to develop models and guidelines to improve judicial reasoning on the basis of legal-theoretical research and comparative case-law analyses (mainly US, UK and Canada). She is also interested in equal treatment and non-discrimination law, in the relationship between national and European constitutional law and in the relationship between courts and legislature.
