Afternoon seminar at Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law, Stockholm University
Lunchseminarium, Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law Stockholms universitet
This seminar will consider some recent case law from the CJEU and will explore some outstanding questions from earlier case law.
Lately, the concept of investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) has featured high in newspaper headlines, parliamentary debates, and even in mass street protests in some EU Member States. The reasons for such sudden, unusual attention are manifold. In such situation, it does not come as a big surprise that also the judiciary is eventually seized with the matter.
This seminar uses Brexit as a “lens” through which the legal nature of EU citizenship and associated rights can be examined.
The development of fundamental rights within the EU is strongly linked with the EU Single Market. Not only has the EU Single Market constituted the source for the development of an EU autonomous fundamental rights regime, but it also raises barriers to the realization of fundamental rights by Member States.
At the start of the Brexit process, the role of the UK Parliament in triggering Article 50 TEU was heavily and very publicly contested. Since the UK Supreme Court's judgment in Miller confirmed Parliament's role in this regard, concern has shifted to the extent to which Parliament can influence the nature of Brexit.
The Institute of European Law (Institutet för Europeisk rätt) invites you to a seminar in EU law with Alison McDonnell & Leonard Besselink.
The EU has undergone a number of crises in the last few years - the economic and financial crisis (“the Eurozone crisis”), the border crisis (“refugee crisis”) and the “rule of law crisis”, to mention just those that still make the headlines of the European newspapers.
This seminar presents some recent developments in EU free movement law and examines the implications for ‘who’ may move and reside freely in other Member States and under what conditions these rights are protected as a result. It also looks at the wider political context in which these developments have taken place and addresses whether free movement law should be reformed further.
The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights; revolution in fundamental rights protection in the Member States of the EU or mere reinforcement?
Vid seminariet lägger Helene Andersson fram manus till sitt avhandlingsprojekt där hon behandlar Europeiska kommissionens gryningsräder i konkurrensärenden ur ett rättighetsperspektiv.
The competitive position of the EU in the world depends not only on pure economic (trade) power but also on the ever increasing regulatory impact of the Union.
The principle of subsidiarity is one of the most contested issues in EU law scholarship. The concerns related to the principle are both substantive and institutional.
Citizen and stakeholder consultation is gaining attention in EU policy and law-making at both the national and EU-level. And while the spotlight is increasingly being directed at stakeholder participation in EU legislative processes, legal considerations relevant to stakeholder consultation remain murky.
At the seminar Eduardo Gill-Pedro will discuss the distinction, made by Dworkin, between arguments of policy and arguments of principle. The former justifies a particular decision on the grounds that it advances or protects some common goal of the community, the latter justifies a decision on the grounds that it respects or secures some individual or group right.
At the seminar Jacob Öberg will present his PhD thesis “LIMITS TO EU POWERS: A case study on individual criminal sanctions for the enforcement of EU law”. The thesis focuses on the limits of the exercise of EU competences using EU criminal policy as a case study.
Concentrating on EU law and the European Convention on Human Rights, Prof. Peter Oliver will consider the fundamental rights which commercial companies currently enjoy, and those which they should enjoy in a variety of fields (e.g. access to justice, property, privacy and freedom of expression).
Vid seminariet lägger Jaan Paju fram manus till sitt avhandlingsprojekt om EU-rättens påverkan på de nationella sociala trygghetssystemen. Docent Thomas Erhag från Göteborgs universitet deltar i seminariet som opponent.
Vid seminariet lägger Helene Andersson fram manus till sitt avhandlingsprojekt. Projektet behandlar Europeiska kommissionens förfarande i konkurrensärenden och den efterföljande rättsliga prövningen ur ett rättighetsperspektiv.
At the seminar Iris Goldner Lang will talk about the EU financial crisis and its legal implications at the EU level, at Member States level and their interface. She will discuss the responses to the financial crisis in terms of financial assistance mechanisms and rules, and will particularly focus on the Treaty change, the ESM and the Fiscal Compact.
