This workshop will explore the ‘openness’ of European national legal orders to international law and European law. The aim is to discuss the following questions:

  • First: What are the legal factors – sources and methods – that determine the ‘openness’ of national legal orders to international law and European law?
  • Second: Who are the actors and what are the politics behind the ‘openness’ of national legal orders?
  • Third: Does ‘openness’ provide a fruitful analytical framework for further research on the relationship between national law and international law and national law and European law?

The workshop will look for patterns among different national jurisdictions and aims at developing research hypotheses for further research.

It will be possible to participate via Zoom. If you wish to do so, please contact Johann Ruben Leiss

The workshop is organised under the auspices of:

Organising Committee: Freya Baetens, Mads Andenas, Emanuel Castellarin, Johann Ruben Leiss and Paolo Palchetti
