About the funding of the thesis

The EEEI has funded and supported Jennifer since 2010 ; the first contacts with the University, her PhD supervisor Xavier Crettiez and she took place in 2009. At this time the subject of the thesis had been debated and in particular, the comparative study between 5 countries of the European Union was decided.

The funding of the EEEI has been of 45.000 €.

The EEEI, with its members, helped Jennifer to find contacts in every country concerned by this work ; judges, lawyers, experts and academics.

By its participation to this project, EEEI wants to show that harmonization of judicial proceedings of the civil and criminal expertise in Europe, is necessary but not sufficient. It is necessary to compare the “good practices” in the various jobs and various countries to bring out the best. It is also one of missions of the EEEI.
