Call for Papers – ESIL IGs Conference: ‘The EU as a Global Actor in Maritime Security: Competences – Obligations – Accountability’
Four ESIL IGs (EU
as a Global Actor, Migration and Refugee Law, International Human Rights Law, and Law of the Sea) and Leiden Law School organise a conference on ‘The EU as a Global Actor in Maritime Security: Competences – Obligations – Accountability‘.
The conference takes place on 25 and 26 October 2018 in Leiden. The aim is to explore what competences the EU has to act in the maritime domain, what obligations it is bound by when doing so, and how judicial oversight can be ensured. Studying the EU’s competences, obligations, and accountability will inform the broader discussion on the current and future role of the EU as a global actor in the maritime domain.
We invite submissions of abstracts for papers that engage with these topics. Abstracts should not be longer than 500 words and submitted no later than 30 June 2018 via email to MaritimeSecurity@law.leidenuniv.nl. Travel and accommodation costs of speakers will be reimbursed.
