Esra Louise Celebi
Esra studied law at Freie Universität Berlin, University of Glasgow, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and participated in a summer program on global challenges at the Graduate Institute in Geneva. After her first state examination, she worked as a research assistant for a Member of the German parliament before joining the ERC project.
Within the ERC project, she focuses on the field of consumers. Her research interests include legal and debt theory as well as law and political economy. She is particularly interested in the purpose of behavioral requirements that consumers must comply with during insolvency and the underlying paradigms of insolvency law. Her aim is to define what sustainability in the realm of consumer debts entails, considering debt not only as an economic medium, but also including political, ecological, and cultural perspectives. She is writing her dissertation on the normative backgrounds and theoretical approaches of consumer insolvency law in different jurisdictions.
