Commuting from one country to another relates the earner to 2 major obligations and rights: the taxes s/he pays and the benefits s/he is entitled. This web-page is about my current and past research on cross-border work, taxation and social security.


Irina Burlacu graduated from the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance and United Nations University/UNU-MERIT, Maastricht in 2014 with a doctoral degree in the field of public policy and policy analysis. Her work focuses on the implications of structural differences in social schemes and income taxes regimes on the welfare of individuals who earn their income in different countries. Her PhD project lasted for 5 years (2009 – 2014) and resulted in publication of 3 book chapters and 2 journal articles, a series of presentations and nominations at international events.

The project was possible with the financial support of the Fonds National de la Recherche, Luxembourg, 1096501* National Research Fund in Luxembourg and the supervision of Prof. Cathal O’Donoghue. Under the promotorship of Prof. Hildegard Schneider, the legal expertise was provided.
