Darinka Piqani joined the Europa Institute as a lecturer in EU law in August 2011. Darinka is a graduate from the Law Faculty of Tirana University ( Albania). After working for one year as a practising lawyer in Tirana, she pursued her LL.M studies in comparative constitutional law specializing in EU law at the Central European University (CEU), Budapest, with a full study grant from the Soros Foundation. She graduated with distinction in 2006. That same year, she started her PhD studies at the Law Department of the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence. In June 2010 she defended her PhD thesis on the supremacy of EU law and constitutional reservations in Central Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. Her research interests include the interaction between the EU and national legal orders, constitutional law of the EU and EU integration in the Western Balkans. She also works as assistant to the editors of the Common Market Law Review, in charge of the book review section. Darinka has published on issues circling around her core research interests and presented (invited) papers at several academic conferences.
