The EUI welcomes George Dellis, Professor of Public Law, University of Athens, to present his most recent book; 'An Economic Analysis of Public Law: Demos and Agora'.

In his latest book, George Dellis, considers the ways in which public law, which emphasizes legality (the Demos), and economics, a science oriented towards the markets (the Agora), intertwine. Throughout, George Dellis argues that the concepts of legality and efficiency should not be perceived separately.

The book presents a convincing argument showcasing that the combination of Demos and Agora can lead to the creation of a ‘new’ public law that improves the functioning of non-consensual institutions. Scholars, researchers, and students interested in the field of law, economics, and philosophy of law are encouraged to attend, for what promises to be an insightful discussion which will contribute to understanding how the Law of State and the State itself evolve in the current, globalised world. 

Following a brief presentation of the book by the author, we are delighted to welcome the perspectives from our discussants, before moving onto an open Q&A with the audience.
