Into The Wild – EU In Crisis: What Remains, If Any, For The Law?

Dates:
  • Mon 14 Jan 2019 15.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-01-14 15:00 2019-01-14 17:00 Europe/Paris Into The Wild – EU In Crisis: What Remains, If Any, For The Law?

The purpose of this seminar is to critically interrogate the place, status and potential relevance of contemporary EU Law & legal thought within this context of EU crisis. Specifically, it intends to reflect upon the kind of legal imaginaries underlying these diagnoses, to scrutinize the assumptions in which they rely, and to explore, both historically and comparatively, what alternative legal could there be at hand paradigms for the ‘future of Europe’. We would like to confront EU Law & Legal Thought with its own self-consciousness. For these purposes, the seminar will draw upon some general categories of psychoanalytic theories/methods, in order to unpack the EU legal psyche. If the EU is indeed experiencing an identity crisis, we hope that this exercise in critical reflectiveness could become a first step in the therapeutic path for identity (re)building.
