Challenges of Global Private Law. EUI Junior Scholars Workshop

Dates:

  Add to Calendar 2019-12-04 9:00 2019-12-04 19:00 Europe/Paris Challenges of Global Private Law. EUI Junior Scholars Workshop

May you live in interesting times. This famous phrase, expressing both excitement and fear, definitely applies to private law theorists in the 21st century. Challenges posed by globalised economy, digital revolution, environmental changes, or constitutionalisation and Europeanisation of private law are of increasingly great importance and complexity. They need to be conceptualised and integrated into private law theory. Certainly, those challenges do not diminish more traditional questions - about the binding force of contract, the foundations of tort law, or the justification of property - even though they might put them in the new perspective. The doctoral workshop aims at highlighting all the shades and shapes of contemporary challenges to private law and its theory. It therefore explicitly adopts a broad perspective of the subject matter both in terms of areas of private law covered (property, contract, tort, family, intellectual property, company law etc.), and theoretical perspectives adopted (analytical, normative, sociological, economical, historical, etc.). Programme attached.
