60 years after the signing of the Treaty of Rome: developments and perspectives on the construction of the area of freedom, security and justice
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome the Observatory on the European area of freedom, security and justice (www.slsg.unisa.it), based at the Department of Legal Sciences (School of Law) of the University of Salerno, is organising an international conference to be held on 24-25 March 2017.
On this occasion, the first issue of the Review “The European Area of Freedom, Security and Justice”, which aims to develop research lines already undertaken under the Observatory, will be presented.
The Review – which benefits from both the Committee of Experts and the Technical- Scientific Committee – as an online publication uses the Web as a tool of circulation and distribution of a cultural product.
The conference will focus on the developments and perspectives on the construction of a European area of freedom, security and justice, where Article 3 of TEU sets out the objective, in fieri, of the creation of a European area of freedom, security and justice as long as the objective, substantially achieved, to establish an internal market.
As an area of shared competence between the European Union and Member States, the area of freedom, security and justice causes a continuous interaction between the European and national level “with respect for fundamental rights and the different legal systems and traditions of the Member States”.
Although the European area appears now basically “communitarized” with significant advances in some areas (such as judicial cooperation in civil matters having cross-border implications) however it continues to be still strongly limited by asymmetries in application while it is forced to confront new “challenges” (terrorism, immigration, weakening if not crisis of fundamental rights, etc.) which strongly affect its completion.
Therefore, given the high complexity and topicality of the theme, as well as the many ideas for consideration that ensue, the Observatory launches a call for papers, to collect contributions of scholars and experts of any nationality of the European Union Law.
To participate, an abstract in Italian or in English, of a maximum length of 9,000 characters (including spaces), must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, before 30 June 2016.
At the same time, Authors must communicate their name, e-mail address, affiliation (if any), and send a short CV.
The abstracts may relate to the thematic profiles of the European area of freedom, security and justice, in particular:
- (policies on) border checks, asylum and immigration;
- judicial cooperation in civil matters having cross-border implications;
- police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters;
- “administrative” cooperation;
as well as those closely related to the construction of the European area, such as the protection of fundamental rights also in a “multilevel” view and the free movement of persons.
The abstracts received will be reviewed, also on the basis of their originality and innovativeness, by the Committee of Experts of the Observatory on the European area of freedom, security and justice no later than 15 September 2016. Authors will receive an answer no later than 20 September 2016 to the communicated email address.
Articles, in the final version and according to the editorial criteria (which will be communicated later), should be sent to email@example.com, no later than 30 November 2016. Selected papers will be published, subject to positive peer-review, in the first thematic issue of the Review “The European Area of Freedom, Security and Justice”.
The authors of particularly innovative contributions will be invited to attend the conference on 24-25 March 2017 as speakers. The organization will cover the accommodation expenses of the winners.
