Our conference aims to discuss the UK’s EUXIT from the perspective of the EU: next to specific UK circumstances, there are shortcomings of EU integration which are perceived beyond this island. One, while the EU integration project set out to improve the living and working conditions throughout the Member States, integration through elite deliberation threatens to fail in providing social legitimacy for the EU. Second, hopes for the EU as an effective promoter of values such as rule of law and social justice may seem misplaced. Our day conference on 23 September 2017, staged in partnership with Warsaw University Faculty of Law & Administration, starts with a high level panel on the EU’s social legitimacy, staging presentations by Professor Catherine Barnard (University of Cambridge), Professor Mary Daly (University of Oxford), and Professor Frank Vandenbrouke, (University of Amsterdam). We invite papers on a wide range of socio-legal perspectives for the EU and Europe going forward until 24 June (funded speakers) or 30 June (self-funded speakers). The call for papers can be downloaded HERE.
