On 20-21 September (Thursday-Friday) there will be two interesting and promising international conferences, both held in English and related to (among others) EU law matters.
The Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest will organise a Legal Research Network Conference (in collaboration with Bristol, Ghent, Göttingen, Groningen, Lille, Turku and Uppsala) on the impact of international instruments on national and European law. Complete program available here. Among the discussed topics will be:
– A Human Rights-based Approach to Social Justice: Lessons from the Quasi-judicial Function of the European Committee of Social Rights
– The European Citizens’ Initiative (see a post on this issue on our blog)
– The European Directive on ADR and the European Regulation on ODR
The conference will be preceded by a Summer School on 17-19 September.
HEC Paris will organise a workshop on regulating lifestyle risks in Europe (in particular focusing on alcohol, tobacco, unhealthy diets and gambling). The program is available here. Among the discussed topics will be:
– Alcohol, tobacco and gambling: Towards a European health policy on addiction?
– The EU’s failure to regulate the marketing of alcoholic beverages
(See this post on our blog related to the regulation of tobacco products by the EU.)
If you happen to be in Paris or in Budapest, it will for sure worth participating!
