Events: Europe’s Justice Deficit: Debate and Book Launch and a Conference on the EU and the Rule of Law

The following events may be of interest to EUtopia readers:

A debate between Justice Giuliano Amato, Constitutional Court of Italy (Former Prime Minister of Italy) and Professor Christian Joerges (Hertie School of Government)

Is the European Union a just political and legal order? Does the EU undermine the pursuit of justice by its Member States? Have scholars and policy-makers paid sufficient attention to questions of justice in the EU context?

This debate marks the launch of Europe’s Justice Deficit (Hart Publishing, Oxford, 2015), co-edited by Dimitry Kochenov, Gráinne de Búrca and Andrew Williams. The three editors and numerous contributing authors to the volume will join the conversation following the debate.

June 4, 2015, London School of Economics and Political Science; 3–6pm, room 32L.G.03 (on the South side of the Lincoln’s Inn Fields), followed by a reception.
