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 legality and morality of weapons systems to which human cognitive functions are delegated (up to and including the capacity to select targets and release weapons without further human intervention) has stirred intense and highly polemical debates. In this volume, roboticists, legal scholars, philosophers and sociologists of science clarify key areas and develop insights with direct policy relevance, including who bears responsibility for autonomous weapons systems, whether they would violate fundamental ethical and legal norms, and how to regulate their development.

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.
