Marta Lasek-Markey is a doctoral researcher in EU Law at Trinity College Dublin. She holds an LL.M. degree from Trinity College Dublin and a Master’s degree in Law from the University of Warsaw, Poland. Her PhD project, funded by the Irish Research Council, is a sociolegal study on posted workers in the EU.
