Call for papers
EuConst Colloquium
5 October 2018
University of Amsterdam

The board of editors of the European Constitutional Law Review invites submissions for its 2018 EuConst Colloquium, which will be held in Amsterdam on 5 October 2018. The meeting is organized in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam and Maastricht University.

In line with the objectives of EuConst, the Colloquium will reflect on themes of European constitutional law, its history and its evolution. The board of editors welcomes submissions on
topical European constitutional issues, including:
– topical aspects of EU law doctrine, as e.g. mutual trust and its limits
– broader issues of constitutional relevance, such as social justice in Europe
– current problems from national law in broader European context, as e.g. the constitutional mandate of the Italian President in comparative perspective
– recent constitutional developments, as e.g. the rule of law crisis in Hungary and Poland
– European constitutionalism between differentiation and disintegration
– topics on fundamental rights, the Charter of Fundamental Rights and the ECJ

Authors should not feel constricted by these suggestions but should ensure their contribution has a distinctly European relevance going beyond the confines of a single national legal order.

Draft papers or abstracts should be submitted for review by 1 July 2018 to euconst@uva.nl with ‘EuConst Colloquium’ in the subject line. Decisions on accepted papers will be made by 15 July 2018. Authors whose contributions are accepted will be expected to submit their paper by 15 September 2018. The board of editors will be happy to consider accepted papers for publication in EuConst, subject to the usual double-blind peer review process. Young scholars preparing for their PhD or within five years of its completion are especially encouraged to submit.
