Call for Papers_16th Dubrovnik Jean Monnet Seminar ‘Blame it on Brussels – EU Law and Distributive Effects of Globalisation’

The 16th session of the Jean Monnet Seminar will focus on the topic “Blame it on Brussels – EU Law and Distributive Effects of Globalisation”.

Paper proposals may cover a variety of areas focusing on two questions raised by the recent political events, particularly Brexit, which shed doubt on the traditional legal narrative of EU integration as beneficial to most citizens. First, did EU Law cause or accentuate any inequality in Europe (e.g. for low skilled labour), or are such inequalities the result of different causes (e.g. globalisation, technical progress) and, second, how could the EU address such inequality and make the positive sides of integration and its contribution to equality more visible.

The Seminar entails two parts – talks by prominent speakers (professors and CJEU members) and young researchers presentations by PhD candidates and junior academics.

Organisers welcome researchers interested in presenting a paper dealing with the topic of the Seminar. Candidates are invited to apply by submitting a paper proposal (500 words max) and a CV by 15 February 2018.

Accepted candidates will be invited to publish their papers in the Croatian Yearbook of European Law & Policy (coming out in December 2018,
