Membership of the Union and Membership of the Euro: Inaugural CMLRev conference

Inaugural Annual Conference

hosted by the University of Liverpool

Friday 9th October 2015

The Common Market Law Review is pleased to launch its annual conference programme with this inaugural event at the University of Liverpool.

The problems which have beset the Eurozone in recent years have generated a momentum of legal and political reform that deeply affects both those Member States that participate in the Single Currency and those Member States which do not. This conference will explore the relationship between the institutional structures and policies of the Union as a whole (on the one hand) and the significant changes afoot in order to stabilise and strengthen the Eurozone (on the other hand). Where do the Eurozone bodies “belong” within the Union’s institutional framework? How are the Eurozone reforms affecting relations (for example) between Europe’s highest courts? What impact does Eurozone reform have upon the Single Market or Union social policy (and vice versa)? And ultimately: if saving the Euro from its current woes means sacrificing the Union in its current form, is that a price we should be prepared to pay?

This conference is open for attendance by all interested EU lawyers and scholars, including academics, postgraduate researchers, policymakers and practitioners.

Registration for the conference is now closed.
