Cultural historian and literary critic Irina Prokhorova, head of the New Literary Observer, will be at the EUI on 25 October to deliver the lecture ‘After Serfdom and Slavery. Intellectual Legacies and Cultural Memories’. Taking a relatively unusual approach to the historical analysis of slavery, Prokhorova will focus on the anthropological analysis of the consequences of the issue in historical and comparative perspective. EUI Fernand Braudel Fellow Kate Brown will be discussant. Please register.
What does equality effectively entail? How can we implement some sort of social justice internationally? What is the common basis of our human dignity, and how can we use this in facing cultural and religious diversity and respecting one another? Political economist and philosopher Philippe van Parijs and legal scholar and social activist Orit Kamir, both visiting at the EUI, will take on these questions in a special session of the Migration Working Group on 25 October. All are welcome – please register.
In homes across Europe, domestic workers labour behind closed doors. Many live where they work: in a world which is both public and private, but on the margins of both. Without regular labour inspections, workers are more vulnerable here than elsewhere. And for migrants employed far from home, the risk of exploitation is high. EUI experts Alexandra Ricard-Guay, Neil Howard, and Anna Triandafyllidou speak with EUI Times in the wake of the EU’s Anti-trafficking Day on 18 October.

The 'individual' or person is a central concept in all of EU economics, politics, society and ethics. The 15 chapters in this innovative edited collection argue that EU law has had a transformative effect on the concept. The volume looks at the mechanisms used when 'constructing the person' in EU law. It goes beyond traditional literature on 'Europe and the Individual' to examine the mechanisms used when ‘constructing the person’ in EU Law, and it explores the question of personhood through critical and contextual perspectives.

The increased use of neuroscientific evidence in courts has led to intense research on the intersection of law and neuroscience. In this volume, leading scholars present their views on a broad range of areas in which neuroscience may inform issues of law and public policy. From discussions featuring the philosophy of the mind to neuroscience-based lie detection, each chapter addresses foundational questions that arise in the application of neuroscientific technology in the legal sphere.

This volume, the published version of a 2015 EUI thesis in Law, examines the frameworks governing data sharing for law enforcement purposes, both within the EU and between the EU and the US and other third party countries, and the associated challenges they pose to data protection. The monograph's comprehensive overview of the current EU data-sharing instruments and their data protection rules makes this book an important resource for scholars and policymakers working in areas related to privacy, data protection, national security and EU external relations.
