Debate: Europe’s Justice Deficit?

The General Court

The General Court

An interesting event – particularly in the current political context – takes place this Thursday at LSE. Hart Publishing will be marking the launch of a new book, Europe’s Justice Deficit?‘, with a debate between Justice Guiliano Amato of the Constitutional Court of Italy and Professor Christian Joerges of the Hertie School of Government. Justice Amato twice served as Prime Minister of Italy.

Together with the book’s co-editors (Dimitry Kochenov, Gráinne de Búrca and Andrew Williams) and authors, Amato and Joerges will consider whether the EU is simply a political and legal order, whether it undermines the pursuit of justice by Member States, and whether scholars and policy-makers have paid sufficient attention to questions of justice in the EU context.

Date and place: Thursday June 4, 2015, London School of Economics and Political Science; 3-6pm, room 32L.G.03 (on the South side of the Lincoln’s Inn Fields). The event will be followed by a reception.
