  Add to Calendar 2015-12-09 10:00 2015-12-11 17:30 Europe/Paris Setting an Agenda for Historical Research in European Law: Actors, Institutions, Policies and Member States

When registering, please indicate which day/s you would like to attend and note that the event will take place in different locations:
Wednesday 9 December: Historical Archives of the European Union, Villa Salviati, De Gasperi Room
Thursday 10 December - Friday 11 December: Villa Schifanoia, Sala Europa


In the last decade, historians have finally begun to explore the history of European Union law based on the documents of recently opened private, state and European archives. The emerging historical scholarship contributes with a new understanding of the development of European law and it opens a debate over how to interpret the role and nature of European law in the broader contexts of European integration and international law. This conference offers a thematic selection of historical analyses but crucially brings in a number of leading historical, legal and political science scholars in order to discuss and re-interpret the history of European law. The aim is to develop a new broader and more reflective agenda for future historical research in EU law and hopefully also contribute to the broader field of interdisciplinary research in European law.

Apart from reflecting on the history of European law, the conference will also be marked on its first day by the opening of the historical archives of the European Court of Justice to the research community. Based on an agreement signed in July 2014, the Court of Justice deposited its historical archives in Florence and is currently establishing procedures on opening the archives to research, which will be marked on 9 December with the presence of the President and the Registrar of the Court.
