EU Law

Call for Papers

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair system. They must be no longer than 300 words and must include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for the submissions is Monday 19 January 2015.

The topic that has dominated the news in recent months and will continue to do so for the next year is the proposal to renegotiate the UK’s relationship with the EU and some of its policies. With that in mind the guiding theme for the European Union stream this year is EU reform. This encompasses the challenges of the current UK-EU relationship, as well as wider institutional reform and developments in substantive policy areas. However, proposals are not restricted to this theme, and abstracts on any area of EU law and policy are welcome. We will endeavour to group papers together, and if appropriate will consider joint panels with other conference streams.

If you have any questions please contact Ian Kilbey or Kathryn Wright
