City Law School Book Launch: Framing Convergence with the Global Legal Order
This event took place in the past.
Jointly hosted by the Institute for the Study of European Law (ISEL), Jean Monnet Chair in Law & Transatlantic Relations and Institute for International Law & Global Affairs (ILAG).
This recently published interdisciplinary book (Hart Publishing, October 2020) explores the concept of convergence of the EU with the global legal order.
It captures the actions, law-making and practice of the EU as a cutting-edge actor in the world promoting convergence 'against the grain'. In a dynamic 'twist' the book uses methodology to reflect upon some of the most dramatically changing dimensions of current global affairs.
Four key themes are probed: - framing EU convergence;- global trade against convergence;- the EU as the exceptional internationalist; and- positioning convergence through methodology.
Remarks by: Gerard Hogan, Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and Elaine Fahey, City Law School (giving Overview of book)
