The Crisis of the Rule of Law Conference: 5-6 February 2018

The rule of law is not only a universal legal category, but also a political, sociological and philosophical concept. The political developments that have recently taken place in several Member States of the EU have brought the rule of law under the European spotlight. This conference will therefore focus on discussing the foundations of the rule of law, i.e. the functioning and the dilemmas of the judiciary (constitutional as well as ordinary courts), as well as the impact that the political changes have on the state’s legitimacy. When is legitimacy based on a constitution exhausted, and does a “revolutionary” legitimacy then take over? What, in this case, should be the reaction of the EU? The future of the EU and its members will also be debated, considering the impact that the crisis of the rule of law has on their functioning, and the changes that are taking place in the democratic settings of EU Member States.

Time and place:
The conference will take place at European Legal Studies Institute, Süsterstraße 28, 49069 Osnabrück, on 5 and 6 February 2018.

Registration:
The conference is free of charge. As the number of participants is limited, early registration by mail at: lsschult@uni-osnabrueck.de is necessary. Participants will receive confirmation of the registration.
