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 conference and Summer Course, 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?

On 2 September 2019, the Constitutional and Administrative Law Department of Leiden Law School and Review of European Administrative Law REALaw will hold a Conference on the Europeanisation of national administrative law, through general principles of law.

Subsequently, on 3 and 4 September 2019, a Summer Course for PhD candidates and young professionals will be held.
