Events In February, Zvezda Vankova and Pauline Melin organized a workshop on “the External Dimension of EU Social Security Coordination” in cooperation with the University of Antwerp as part of the TRANSMIC project. The workshop took place at the UM Brussels campus and attracted senior academics working in this field, as well as policy makers from the EU and the national level. The participants discussed the current state of affairs and the future prospects of the External Dimension of EU Social Security Coordination focusing on the common EU and national Member States approaches to social security coordination with selected third countries. Claire Kilpatrick, Bruno de Witte and Elise Muir organised the workshop “How EU Law Shapes Opportunities for Preliminary References on Fundamental Rights: Discrimination and other Examples” which took place at the European University Institute in Florence. In March, MCEL conducted a joint seminar with METRO. METRO visiting researcher Agnieszka Bień-Kacała gave a joint presentation with Tímea Drinóczi to discuss constitutional developments in Poland and Hungary. MCEL member Matteo Bonelli acted as a discussant. In April, Mariolina Eliantonio co-organised the one-day workshop “Scientific Knowledge in Environmental Litigation: National Solutions, EU Requirements and Current Challenges” for researchers and judges. The workshop aimed at exploring several national perspectives on the way in which judges access scientific knowledge in environmental matters, with the aim of answering the overarching questions as to whether, in the respective legal systems, the principle of effective judicial protections is guaranteed, and whether the current differences in the law and the practice of the various legal system might impair the uniform and effective enforcement of EU law. Mariolina Eliantonio also co-organised a workshop on “European Standardisation for Internal Market and its Constitutional Challenges” in April. Elise Muir, furthermore, organised a roundtable on “EU Equality Law as the ‘First’ Fundamental Rights Policy of the EU”. In May, Zvezda Vankova co-organized the panel “Third Country Perspectives on EU Actorness and Influence” as part of the TRANSMIC Final Conference at the European University Institute in Florence.

9


In June, Zvezda Vankova co-organized a TRANSMIC panel at the Annual IMISCOE conference which took place in Rotterdam. IMISCOE is the largest European network of scholars in the area of migration and integration. TRANSMIC fellows Leonhard den Hertog (CEPS), Pauline Melin, Fanny Tittel-Mosser (University of Minho) and Zvezda Vankova participated in a panel bringing together four papers based on legal empirical research undertaken by the TRANSMIC project. They took the perspectives of third countries as the entry point into discussions over what kind of actor the EU is in its external policies on migration, mobility, borders and international protection. The discussions focused on what shapes the external actorness of the EU in these fields, and what implications this has for third countries. In September, the Academic Opening Conference, co-organized by MCEL/CERIM, took place. The theme was “Multi-Speed Europe, Differentiated Integration and The Future of the European Union”. Furthermore, Maja Brkan, Francesca Galli and Vigjilenca Abazi organized a conference in Brussels on “The Surveillance Triangle: Authorities, Data Subjects and Means”. The conference tackled the question of how surveillance is perceived from the perspective of three main stakeholders involved in the process of surveillance: surveillance authorities, data subjects and companies.

10


In November, Bilyana Petkova was one of the co-organizers of a one-day conference on privacy held at the New York University. The event explored the possibilities for cities and localities to use Big Data effectively while preserving privacy. In December, Ellen Vos organized a debate on “EU Agencies in the Future Europe”. Questions as “Are EU agencies sufficiently transparent?”, “Is the model on which EU agencies are based in terms of expertise still sufficient for the future?” and “Can EU agencies bring Europe closer to its citizens?” were discussed during the debate.

11


Research seminars The MCEL research seminars are monthly research events for which distinguished scholars are invited to talk about current developments within the law. The following research seminars took place this year: In February, the first research seminar of 2017 featured the presentation of Richard Crowe titled “The European Budgetary Galaxy”. Phedon Nicolaides was the discussant of the lively debate which took place after the presentation. In March, The research seminar featured a case law discussion by Annalisa Volpato. The case discussed was “C-613/14, James Elliott Construction Limited v Irish Asphalt Limited”. Mariolina Eliantonio acted as a discussant and MCEL members asked several questions which led to a fruitful discussion in the group. In April, the seminar featured a presentation of Marijn Van Der Sluis, Lecturer at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The presentation was titled “In Law We Trust: the Role of EU Constitutional Law in the Euro”. Paul Dermine acted as a discussant and led an interesting discussion afterwards. In May, the research seminar included presentations of two new Assistant Professors in European Law: Diane Fromage and Natassa Athanasiadou. Diane Fromage started with a presentation on “National Parliaments in an (increasingly) Asymmetric European Union”. Natassa Athanasiadou then continued with her presentation titled “The European Citizens’ Initiative: Lost in Admissibility?”.

12


In June, the seminar started with a presentation on the Brexit negotiation guidelines, given by Natassa Athanasiadou and a presentation on the Opinion rendered by the Court of Justice on the EU-Singapore trade agreement by Andrea Ott. The two presentations related to each other since the Opinion of the Court of Justice on the EU-Singapore trade agreement will also have repercussions for the future EU-UK trade deal. The presentations were followed by a debate on important current developments at the EU level. In November, Emilia Korkea-Aho from the University of Helsinki presented her research by giving a presentation entitled “Lawyer Lobbyists: The (Ab)Uses of Legal Expertise?” during the research seminar. Andreea Nastase from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences of Maastricht University was the discussant of the debate afterwards. In December, MCEL welcomed Andrea Ott and Raymond Luja at the last research seminar of 2017. Raymond Luja presented on “The FIDE 2018 General Report on State Aid and Taxation: First Observations.” Andrea Ott presented the national report of the Netherlands prepared for FIDE 2018, entitled “The External Dimension of the EU Policies: Horizontal Issues; Trade and Investment; Immigration and Asylum.” These two presentations were followed by a lively discussion among the MCEL members.

13


Research forums The MCEL research forums are monthly research events where MCEL members - PhD scholars as well as more senior scholars - present their current research or discuss current developments in the law. The following research forums took place this year: In January, the first research forum of the year was held and gave us an opportunity to critically reflect on agencification, related recent developments at the level of the EU and their implications. The core of the event was a presentation made by Laszlo Szegedi, an MCEL visiting researcher. The topic of the presentation was "Inspection Power in Diverse Institutional Models in the European Union - All roads Lead to EU Agencies?". In February, the research forum featured a presentation by the MCEL visiting researcher Annalisa Volpato on “A Legal Framework for the Delegation of Powers in the European Legal System”. After the presentation, the other participants engaged in a discussion about various aspects of the delegation of powers in the EU. In November, two research forums were held: one at the beginning of the month and one at the end of the month. The first research forum featured two presentations: one by Paul Dermine and one by Alberto Miglio, an MCEL visiting researcher. Alberto's presentation dealt with the topic of differentiated integration and the principle of loyalty, while Paul's reflected upon “the Role of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in the EU Economic Governance in the Post-Crisis Era”. During the last forum of 2017 Sabrina Röttger-Wirtz presented the findings of her PhD research. Her PhD research was entitled “The Interplay of Global Standards and EU Pharmaceutical Regulation” and explores the implementation of pharmaceutical standards set by the International Council for Harmonisation in the EU. Her findings led to a fruitful debate afterwards.
