In the margins of the ESIL Catania Research Forum, the ESIL Interest Group on the EU as a Global Actor will hold a workshop on the EU’s global role with respect to the principle of solidarity under international law on 15 April 2021. The primary target audience for the event is legal scholars at an early stage of their careers.
The theme of the upcoming ESIL Research Forum concerns the role of solidarity in the fabric of international law as well as in its different branches of law. The EUGlobal Interest Group will pick up this topic by focusing on the European Union’s global role with respect to the principle of solidarity under international law. Therefore, EUGlobal welcomes proposals for papers addressing mainly (but not limited to) the following themes:
- Solidarity as a legal principle in the EU legal order: challenges in the law of external relations and the role of EU judiciary.
- Burden sharing, responsibility-sharing and solidarity under the new EU Pact on Migration and Asylum: a blueprint for the global legal order?
- Case studies of EU law influencing universal standard-setting related to solidarity within the international community (e.g. EU’s contribution to the ILC’s draft articles on the protection of persons in the event of disasters etc.).
The IG EUGLOBAL invites submissions of abstracts, written in English or French, of no more than 500 words. Applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 January 2021 (Sunday) 24:00h CET, with a short curriculum vitae containing the author’s name, institutional affiliation, contact information (e-mail and phone number), and whether the applicant is member of ESIL. Selected speakers will be notified by 15 February 2021 via e-mail.
