Adopting primarily an interdisciplinary, doctrinal, and comparative approach, Emma Luce's research addresses the relationship between sovereign debt (SD) and human rights (HR), with a special focus on European countries. It aims at providing, in particular, a comprehensive conceptual framework on SD and its legal regimes, and an analysis and systematization of relevant international human rights norms: What is the impact of SD on HR? Who are the actors involved in the SD market (states, supranational institutions, non-state actors) and what are their respective roles and responsibilities? What are the norms/legal regimes governing SD? Does (or should) international human rights law bind the actors involved, particularly states? Is there any legal 'gap' or reform required?
