New editorial board member: prof. Sofia Ranchordas


Dr. Sofia Ranchordas is a Full Professor of Administrative Law at Tilburg Law in the Netherlands and a Professor of Law, Innovation, and Sustainability at LUISS Guido Carli in Rome. In 2022, she was awarded two prestigious grants from the Dutch Research Council (NWO- VIDI) and the Wallenberg Foundation (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program - Visiting Professorship at Lund University, Sweden) to conduct research on how the automation of digital government impedes vulnerable citizens from exercising their rights before government and how to reshape administrative law to address this problem. 

Her research agenda is focused on two interconnected topics: (i) regulatory policy and the advancement of innovation; (ii) the impact of digital transformations on inequality.

Her work on regulation and innovation delves into regulatory performance, experimental regulations, regulatory sandboxes, sunset clauses, and future-proofing approaches to lawmaking. Her current scholarship on public law and digital transformations investigates the rights of vulnerable citizens in the digital society, the impact of digital social welfare on fundamental rights, the protection of public values in the platform economy, and the design of smart cities.
