Conference and Summer Course on the Europeanisation of national administrative law a great success!
From 2 to 4 September 2019 the Conference and Summer Course on the Europeanisation of administrative law took place in Leiden. The central theme of the Conference and Summer Course was the Europeanisation of national administrative law through general principles of law: from resistance to voluntary adoption.
The conference and summer course were a great success thanks to the many interesting lectures of renowned scholars and judges, such as Professor Takis Tridimas (chair of European Law at Kings College London), Professor Sacha Prechal (judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union and Professor at Utrecht University) and Professor Herwig Hofmann (Professor of European and Transnational Public Law at the University of Luxembourg).
On the first day more than seventy people attended the conference. On the second and third day, twenty participants, consisting of mainly PhD students and a few lawyers from nine different EU member states, dove further into the topic by analyzing the extent to which several general principles are Europeanised in their member states. The lectures and discussions revealed similarities as well as differences as to the reception of EU law in the Member States, and raised questions for further research on the Europeanisation of administrative law.
The conference was organized by Leiden Law School and the Review of European Administrative Law (commonly known as REALaw). The summer course was organised by Leiden Law School. The organizing committee consisted of Willemien den Ouden, Annemarie Drahmann, Clara van Dam and Demy Jongkind (Leiden University).
