EU Law: Taking Economics Seriously?

1.00pm

Seminars

Academics

Speaker: Professor Michelle Everson, Birkbeck College                       

Given the plethora of recent literature on financial and sovereign debt crisis within the EU, it may seem strange to assert that European Legal Scholarship is still failing to take economics seriously. Nevertheless, where commentary has – by and large – focused on the mode of adaptation of European law to new regimes of fiscal and economic supervision, it has similarly failed to grasp the depth of the current challenge being posed to law in general, and European law in particular of new economic technologies of anarcho-liberalism (Foucault). This lecture will seek to unpack these challenges – to notions of justice, legal methodology and constitutional/legal legitimacy – with reference to European Banking Union and the Treaty on Stability, Growth and Co-ordination.
