Phd Summer School Europeanisation of national administrative law
Europeanisation of national administrative law through general principles of law: from resistance to voluntary adoption.
The systems of administrative law in the EU Member States are subject to Europeanisation processes; for instance, through the transposition of EU rules into national legislation, and through the application of EU law by national courts. The influence of EU law is usually most visible in substantive administrative law, such as environmental, consumer, and economic law. However, the general administrative laws of the EU Member States are also being influenced through interaction with the European legal system.
During the summer school, scholars from the EU Member States will share their knowledge and insights on the role that the general principles of law play in the Europeanisation of the general administrative law systems of the Member States. Where and how do these principles lead to Europeanisation? Where are the European principles smoothly absorbed into national legal systems, and where do Europeanisation processes encounter resistance? Where are European legal principles even voluntarily adopted in the national administrative legal systems?
The summer school will start with a conference on 2 September 2019. Subsequently, on 3 and 4 September 2019, a Summer School for PhD candidates and young professionals will be held.
Already confirmed speakers are:
Luis Arroyo Jiménez & Gabriel Domenech, Professors of Administrative Law at the University of Castille – La Mancha and University of Valencia;
Herwig Hofmann, Professor of European and Transnational Public Law at the University of Luxembourg;
Sacha Prechal, judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union and Professor at Utrecht University;
Takis Tridimas, chair of European Law at Kings College London;
Henrik Wenander, Professor of Public Law at Lund University;
Lamprini Xenou, Lecturer at Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC).
The summer course will allow participants to understand the significant effects of the Europeanisation of administrative law in the EU Member States. Additionally, it will be an opportunity for academics and practitioners in the field of European and administrative law to share insights and build professional relationships. Upon completion of the course, all participants will receive a certificate.
Willemien den Ouden, professor of public law at Leiden Law School
The course is open to doctoral students and young professionals in the EU Member States who are eager to learn more about the reception of EU law in the general administrative law of other Member States and who would like to share their experience or knowledge on the Europeanisation of their own national administrative law.
