Jussi Jaakkola's research focuses on systemic interrelations between tax law, international economic integration and democracy, especially in the framework of the European Union. Jaakkola’s research also addresses the unfolding of political ideas on inter-state regulatory competition and how these ideas transform the perceptions of the law.
