Call for Papers – II LAwTTIP Joint Conference: Rights, Values and Trade: Is an Agreement between EU and US Still Possible?


Conference on 12-13 April 2018 in Bologna, Sala delle Armi, School of Law (via Zamboni 22)


The International Research Centre on European Law of the University of Bologna, together with the IODE – Institut de l’Ouest: Droit et Europe of the University of Rennes 1 and the Centre of European Law at King’s College London, are pleased to announce the organization of the II LAwTTIP Joint Conference. The Jean Monnet Network LAwTTIP – Legal Ambiguities withstanding TTIP – intends to promote a large-scale legal reflection of both the existing EU Free Trade Agreements of new generation and the ongoing negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP).


The II LAwTTIP Joint Conference will put the political and social debate on the substantive implications of TTIP and other EU trade agreements of new generation for the Union’s system of protection of its values and fundamental rights into a legal perspective. Particular emphasis will be given in this respect to the possible developments related to the finalization of the TTIP, the negotiation of which has been provisionally “frozen” by Trumps’ Administration.



Deadline for submissions: 8 March 2018
