Centre For Judicial Cooperation (CJC)


Welcome to the Centre for Judicial Cooperation Website!


Villa Schifanoia


The Centre for Judicial Cooperation was created in December 2011 as the joint project of the faculty of the EUI Law Department. Headed, since January 2016, by Professor Deirdre Curtin, its main purpose is the establishment of a space of collaboration and exchange of knowledge between legal practitioners and academic community on a variety of topics.

Through its activities and expertise, the Centre aims to provide an umbrella framework for the judicial cooperation and dialogue initiatives undertaken at the European University Institute. For this reason, the Centre engages both professional groups to participate in differentiated activities ranging from workshops and conferences to pure research and policy endeavours. In order to disseminate the results of its work, the Centre shall publish Working Papers and Distiguished Lectures and debate on the Discussion Forum the findings of research activities, thus engaging in the open sourced discussion with the judicial and academic communities.

The Centre for Judicial Cooperation employs a unique philosophy and methodology which attracts both judges and academics. Our experts constitute the second strengths of the Centre adding to its international character the most up-to-date knowledge. The transnational and diverse blend of our activities therefore makes sure that dialogue between authors, judges and practitioners is constantly put into place, allowing for improvement of research and its outputs related to judicial dialogue.
