Applications are welcome for this workshop taking place on 18 November 2021, as part of the ACELG annual conference. PhD and early career scholars will have the opportunity to present and receive feedback on their work from some of the leading experts in EU law including: Diamond Ashiagbor, Mathias Möschel, Fernanda Nicola, Maria Weimer and Floris de Witte.

With regards to social justice issues, the European Union is facing a growing number of simultaneous challenges: high levels of poverty and social exclusion, the accelerating climate emergency, the increasing reliance on non-transparent new technologies for decision-making, as well as the persistence of race, gender and other forms of inequalities in post-colonial (or neo-colonial) contexts.

What is the role of EU law in enabling these concurrent ‘crises’, and what can it do to address them?

If you are interested in joining us, please submit a one page document including a 500 word abstract of your paper (a chapter of your thesis or an article) as well as a 500 word text about yourself and your work to by October 11th. Please indicate in the subject line “Emerging voices annual ACELG workshop.”

Submission topics might include EU trade and investment, social policy, discrimination or immigration law, environmental policies or any other aspects of EU law. We invite contributions from scholars using critical approaches to EU law, and from scholars from academic institutions, European countries, and cultural backgrounds which tend to be not as well represented at EU & global conferences.

Up to five participants will be selected and notified at the beginning of October, and they will be expected to send a 10 page draft by November 2nd.

We very much hope that the format of this workshop will be hybrid, and selected participants’ traveling and accommodation will be covered according to UVA sustainability guidelines.
