58th London-Leiden meeting: The European Union and International Law
- Saturday 29 June 2019
- King's College London, Bush House, 30 Aldwych
London, WC2B 4BG
Now in its 58th year, this year's London-Leiden conference will discuss the role of the European Union in the broader international law framework. Article 3(5) of the Treaty on the European Union, requires the Union to contribute to the strict observance and development of international law. In this conference, we will explore whether and how the European Union is implementing this commitment especially as it relates to 4 core areas namely: competition law, trade and investment, human rights and the relationship with international organisations. The conference will comprise 4 panels around short interventions allowing participants to contribute through questions and comments.
The event is convened by Professor Margot Horspooll (Honorary Fellow in European Law) and Dr Jean-Pierre Gauci (Arthur Watts Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law); is organised in collaboration with the Europa Institute at the University of Leiden and will be hosted by King's College London.
