This issue of Erasmus Law Review continues and completes the bridge initiated by issue 9:3 between the original format of working exclusively with thematic issues, and also having issues on submissions. It gives the floor to three promising doctoral students of Erasmus School of Law, who are now nearing the completion of their research. In addition, this issue carries an inspiring contribution by one of our esteemed professors. Typical for a non-thematic issue, a broad variety of topics are covered, ranging from the methods of investigation at the disposal of private investigators in the corporate sector, and the Court of Justice of the EU’s case law regarding restrictions to the free movement of capital, over the methodology of comparative tax research, to discussing policy responses to hedge funds activism.
