The theme will concern the inroads made by International law in European Community law. Having extensively discussed legal aspects of EU-US relations at last year's Leiden London meeting, we will now turn our attention, in particular, to the role of UN resolutions and of WTO rules in relation to Community law and their compatibility with EU legislation, involving questions of primacy and limits of competence.
Speakers will include prominent academics and practitioners, some of whom represent the parties involved in cases before the European courts.
Community law experts are well acquainted with the London Leiden meetings, but the aim of the meeting is also to attract those international lawyers who are interested in hearing more about and discussing the relationship between international law and European Community law. There will be ample opportunity for informal discussions.
- Tribute to Professor Henry (Hein) Schermers.
- UN Security Council Resolutions: in search of the right fit?
- How should Courts deal with the decision of other International Tribunals, such as WTO?
