Statute Law Society lecture: Jonathan Swift QC, ‘Constitutional Statutes: Construction and Legal Adjudication’. Monday 28 January 2013, 6-7 pm, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, London.
European and National Constitutional Law Closing Conference: ‘The European Constitution is best perceived as a composite Constitution, comprising constitutional rules and principles developed at European level, complemented by (common) national constitutional rules and principles as well as those from other sources such as the ECHR and international law. Crucially, European as well as national law are involved in defining a European constitutional law’. The ERC-funded European and National Constitutional Law (EuNaCon) project (2008 – 13) was set up to better understand and improve the body of knowledge on the national component of Europe’s composite Constitution. As such, national constitutional traditions and principles have been analysed and compared in four key areas of constitutional law, and the insights obtained have been used to formulate a better understanding of Europe’s composite Constitution. EuNaCon marks its successful conclusion with a Closing Conference that takes place between 20-22 February 2013 in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
