New perspectives on EU law in the shadow of the constitutional crisis

The European Union’s integration project is undermined by a wave of nationalism sweeping over Europe. Other than the institutional shortcomings affecting the EU’s constitutional legal system (e.g. democratic deficit, legitimacy crisis, technocratic legislature, etcetera) there are several socio-political factors, which in relation the development of the EU, is contributing to spreading nationalism. Among these are labor migration, asylum politics, and economic austerity.

Our workshop will explore will focus on the EU’s asylum and migration crisis, the displacement of the European social dialogue, cross-border social dumping, and Brexit. Even though these material issues at a glance may not appear to be clearly related to each other, they contribute by demonstrating the EU’s constitutional crisis on different scales.
