Call for Papers: The Evolution of European Courts

Kolega Martin Mík mě upozornil na tuto velmi zajímavou konferenci, kterou můžu vřele doporučit (sám jsem se zúčastnil v roce 2005 ve sladkém Aix en Provence, výsledkem pak byl tento článek).

Motivací může být především šance publikovat v prestižním evropském časopise European Law Journal (a mít tak "čárku", která se počítá i mimo českou kotlinu ;-), popřípadě zúčastnit se diskursu na evropské úrovni (to pro ty, které čárky nemotivují).


6th International Workshop for Young Scholars (WISH)

Organised by: European Law Journal/University College Dublin, School of Law Centre d’Études et de Recherches Internationales et Communautaires (CERIC-CNRS-UMR-6201) Université Paul Cézanne (Aix-Marseille III) Faculté de droit et de science politique / COLLEGE D’EUROPE DE NATOLIN

Friday 16th and Saturday 17th November 2007, University College Dublin

The European Courts – both the Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance – remain central actors in the development of the European Union. The Court of Justice as a doctrinal and constitutional innovator is rightly credited with having laid the key foundational constitutional principles of the Union: the supremacy of EU law, the doctrine of direct effect, and the recognition of human rights principles. The dynamics between national courts and the European courts provide unique insights into the role of courts in polity-building and in the judicial elaboration of central tenets of the rule of law such as consistency and coherence. As well as the evolution of the European Courts, the aim of this Workshop is to explore key aspects of their contemporary role at the interface of law and governance, in the development of informal constitutionalisation at a time of formal documentary constitutional uncertainty, and in addressing the institutional pressures of the new multichambered system and the an ever increasing volume of cases. It also asks about the future evolution of the Courts, and about the theoretical insights for European studies and for legal theory generally that can be drawn from our understanding of the Courts and their role in the EU.

The workshop builds on the success of the five previous International Workshops for Young Scholars (WISH) held annually from 2002. It seeks to bring together the most promising young scholars concerned with the theme of “The Evolution of the European Courts” from universities of the EU Member States, including new Member States, countries that are on the boundaries of the EU and those beyond Europe in Asia, Australasia and the Americas. The Workshop is intended to offer participants an opportunity to present their best research work in a professional academic setting to an audience of other young scholars and more senior scholars. It is also intended to provide a means by which their work be published either in the form of an article or in a bilingual edited book (Bruylant, Brussels) destined for an international readership. The Workshop, one of the first of its kind in Europe, is orientated towards research currently being carried out by advanced doctoral students who have not yet submitted their thesis.

Papers that adopt theoretical, socio-legal or law in context perspectives are particularly welcome as well as those that draw on literatures found in other disciplines such as sociology, political science and anthropology. The Sixth WISH is intended to explore the evolution of the Court beyond traditional doctrinal analysis of case law. Contributions are invited on relevant topics, including but not limited to the following:

 the European Court of Justice in the 21st century  the role and influence of the Court of First Instance in the EU legal order  the supranational judiciary in an enlarged EU  the courts as political actors  a supreme court for Europe  the development of specialist chambers  the nature of judicial interpretation in the European Courts  the influence of procedures in shaping the deliberations of the court  language and legal interpretation  law in court – soft law and governance before the courts  national courts and the European courts  the nature of law in a supra-national legal order  the European courts as a model for the rule of law in regional integration.

These examples are indicative, not exhaustive. Proposals on other aspects of the theme of ‘The Evolution of the European Courts: Institutional Change and Continuity’ in these areas are also welcome.

The Workshop will take place over one and a half days. It will comprise six panels (two per half-day). Each panel will include approximately three presentations by young scholars. Another young scholar will serve as discussant. Each panel will be chaired by a senior scholar. Ample time will be left for discussion. The working languages are English and French.

The costs of travel and accommodation (up to 2 nights hotel: Friday, Saturday) of paper-givers and discussants will be covered by the organisers. Further information will be provided in due course to those whose proposals are accepted.
