The aim of the Workshop is to bring together researchers with an interest in EU law in its broad meaning and to offer an opportunity to establish new contacts, gain information about ongoing research projects and engage in constructive discussion, ultimately contributing to better research. The Workshop for European Legal Studies targets doctoral students, junior researchers, senior researchers, researchers with a primary focus on EU law, researchers working in other areas of law but taking an interest in EU law, as well as researchers within other scholarly disciplines interested in EU law.

During two half days, participants to the workshop will contribute to the scholarly debate by means of presentations and panel discussions.

Would you like to present?

We hope that you are interested in presenting a paper related to EU law, which you would like to share with and receive input on from the other participants.

The overall theme of the workshop is the impact of EU law, broadly construed. Participants are encouraged to present on issues of the interface between EU law and other legal systems, such as, but not limited to, the WTO or the ECHR. We also welcome papers on the impact of EU law on different areas of national legislation, such as, but again not limited to, labour law, environmental law, administrative law, IT law etc. Indeed, we would like to highlight that research on EU law can be conducted on a variety of issues, and through a variety of methods, and by researchers with a primary focus on other areas of law.

We hope that you are interested in sharing and receiving feedback on presenting a research project or research question with ties to EU law. We are looking for large subject breath, which means that all research questions taken from EU law in a broad sense are of interest. In order to enable us to put together interesting and well-functioning panels we need you to submit a title and a short description of the proposed contribution by June
15th 2018
, at the latest.

Confirmations of acceptance will be communicated by June 25th 2018.

We also encourage joint submissions of proposals for panels consisting of three
contributions with a common theme.

Of course, you are most welcome to participate without presenting a paper.


The participants are expected to submit a short paper (or extended abstract) no later than August 5th 2018. The paper shall contain a short description of the project/research topic and shall not exceed the length of three pages. These papers will circulate among the registered participants as a basis for the presentation.


Accepted contributions will be placed in a panel of contributions with a similar topic. During the workshop, each participant will be granted approx. 20 minutes to present their contribution followed by comments by the chair and a general discussion. The presentation should be held in English, unless all participants in a panel prefer to make it in Swedish.


If space allows, interested participants will be offered the opportunity to publish thefi nal version of their contribution in a special issue of Europarättslig Tidskrift (ERT).
The publication is subject to editorial review.
