The University of Groningen is organising a workshop on the theme: “Opinion 1/19, Istanbul Convention – Exploring Legal Themes and Consequences“.

The aim of this workshop is to explore the variety of legal themes raised by Opinion 1/19, as well as the broader consequences of the Opinion for the EU’s accession to the Istanbul Convention. In doing so, the workshop seeks to assess the impact of Opinion 1/19 on the law and practice of EU external relations, and to highlight some of the remaining questions and problems that may impact the EU’s and/or the Member States’ future action on the international scene.

The workshop will take place in a hybrid format on 17 December 2021. You can either join at the University of Groningen or online. For either option, please register HERE.
