Marie-José Garot is an expert in European Law. She has taught and carried out intense research projects at prestigious universities like the European University Institute of Florence, the European Centre for Public Law (Athens), the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Carlos III University in Madrid, or the Toulouse-le-Mirail University.
