LLX round table on recent preliminary reference by German Federal Constitutional Court
Recently, the German Federal Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) issued its second preliminary reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union. Following its earlier reference on the European Central Bank’s bond buying programme Outright Monetary Transactions, the German court now expresses its severe concerns about the Bank’s Quantitative Easing programme.
The Europa Institute, in cooperation with the European Research Centre for Economic and Financial Governance (EURO-CEFG), is organizing an LLX-roundtable on the preliminary reference on Friday 24 November 2017, with the following distinguished speakers:
- Martin Nettesheim (professor of European law, University of Tubingen);
- Jan-Herman Reestman (associate professor of constitutional law, University of Amsterdam) and
- Clovis Hopman (senior legal counsel, Dutch Central Bank).
During the meeting entitled ‘In the spirit of close cooperation? ECB under scrutiny’, the discussion will focus on the technical details of the Quantitative Easing programme, its EU law dimension as well as its potential implications for the relationship between the Court of Justice and the Bundesverfassungsgericht.

The roundtable is organized in the context of the Leiden Law Exchanges (LLX). The aim of these LLX meetings is to facilitate an exchange of ideas on current legal issues between academics, policy makers and other stakeholders. Chatham House Rule applies and the meeting is by invitation only.
