On the difficulties encountered during the PhD – Interview of Charlotte Blanc-Fily, part 3

Thèse Charlotte Blanc Fily SudreIs a researcher in European law also a researcher in national law ?

Yes, absolutely – because a researcher is studying the defence of rights which are protected in the European system just as by nationals rules.

 Did you face any difficulty during your thesis ? If so, which ones ?

I think there are three hard things to go through. First, social isolation. Then, finding a research funding. Finally, the  lack of understanding of the merits of a PhD on the job market.

How did you face them ?

Speaking with colleagues, or thesis advisor helps getting out social isolation. And sometimes, you just need time to mature and make your thinking evolve. About finding a research funding and understanding of the degree’s value on job market, some significant improvement can be brought by a better image of the PhD outside the university community and a better professional integration of doctors of law in firms and international organisations.
