Call for Papers: What Form of Government for the European Union and the Eurozone?
Venue: Tilburg Law School, Tilburg, the NetherlandsDates: 5/6 June 2014Organizers: Federico Fabbrini, Han Somsen on behalf of Tilburg Law School
The debate about the institutional reforms of the European Union (EU) generally, and of the Euro-zone specifically, has recently acquired a new impetus. The Euro-crisis and the constitutional responses to it have profoundly modified de facto and de jure the institutional architecture of the EU designed by the Lisbon Treaty, and a number of influential road-maps have been advanced at the highest level of policy-making to trace the way forward for the EU. The purpose of this Conference is to examine from a comparative constitutional perspective the form of government of the EU and to discuss the prospects of integration and institutional reform in the Eurozone and the EU at large.
The Conference will feature the participation of a number of distinguished scholars, including Paul Craig (Professor of Law, St. John’s College, Oxford), Christian Calliess (Professor of Law, Freie Universität, Berlin) Deirdre Curtin (Professor of Law, Amsterdam), Ernst Hirsch Ballin (Professor of Law, Tilburg and former Minister of Justice of the Netherlands), Daniel Kelemen (Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University), Jean-Claude Piris (Professor of Law, and former Director, Legal Service of the Council of the EU), and Sylvie Goulard (Member of the European Parliament, Committee of Economic and Monetary Affairs) all of which have confirmed their presence.
