  Add to Calendar 2018-10-08 9:00 2018-10-09 12:45 Europe/Paris The External Impact of the European Court of Justice: The Influence of ECJ Judgments on Non-EU Countries

The Second Workshop of this project will open with an update on the current status of the project and our negotiations with an academic publisher. We will then hear a lecture of Prof. Joanne Scott of the European University Institute on the global reach of EU law and how our project fits in within the wider scope of the “export” of EU norms. Then, contributors will present their final papers regarding the extent of the impact of the EU Court of Justice in the jurisdictions of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine, as well as in the Eurasian Economic Union, emphasizing where their papers have evolved since our meeting in Helsinki in March. During this workshop, we will also try to draw general conclusions on the extent of the influence that the CJEU has had outside the borders of the EU and in which fields of law is such influence more apparent. We would also like to develop insights on the dynamics of such influence and to formulate generalized findings on the factors that have an impact on the existence or non-existence of any influence by the CJEU. In light of these findings, we would also like to consider policy recommendations, on the one hand in view of the countries’ own interests of improving the quality of their respective legal systems, and on the other hand in light of the EU’s external policy and legal integration objectives vis à vis its neighbourhood.
