Inaugural Lecture Human Rights and the Autonomy of EU Law: Pluralism or Integration?

20 February 2013

Date: Thursday 7 March 2013, 6 - 7pm

Venue: UCL Faculty of Laws

Speaker: Professor Piet Eechhout, UCL Laws

About the Event: The EU's accession to the ECHR raises questions about the autonomy of EU law, and about the relationship between the the EU Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. The lecture will critique the prevailing theories of legal/constitutional pluralism, and propose an alternative paradigm: the integration of laws. Within integrated legal systems, the argument goes, conflicts between supreme adjudicators can be resolved from within the law. There is a law of integration, and the relationships between supreme/constitutional courts are governed by a principle of limited and shared jurisdiction.
