The CoE Foundations of European Law and Polity Research
invites doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers to submit proposals for papers to be presented in the working groups of the Centre's 3rd Annual Conference, on 15-16
September in Helsinki, on Justice.
The Centre of Excellence in Foundations of European Law and Polity Research, financed by the Academy of Finland and hosted by the Faculty of Law at the University of Helsinki,
organized in August 2010 a conference on the topic of Rethinking Legal Thinking. The purpose was to examine the impact of the law’s transnationalisation on our inherited way
of thinking and talking about the law. One of the central concepts whose rethinking was deemed necessary was that of justice. The CoE’s Annual Conference 2011 will continue the
discussion on legal transnationalisation by way of focusing on the concept of justice. The main emphasis will be on Europeanisation without, however, ignoring the global aspect.
The Conference will be divided into five plenary sessions. The first session is dedicated to the historical and philosophical background; the second will discuss justice in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice; the third will focus on the issue of justice in the field of private law and regulation of the European market-place; and the fourth will
concentrate on issues related to Social Europe. The main speakers of each of these sessions will participate in the final, concluding session. In addition to the plenary
sessions, the Centre invites doctoral students and post-doc researchers to submit papers that will be presented and discussed in working groups.
