UCL Laws and UCL Press delighted to launch the new journal ‘Europe and the World: A law review’

21 June 2017

UCL Faculty of Laws and UCL Press co-organised a launch event for the new journal ‘Europe and the World: A law review’ on 19 June at UCL Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre

Europe and the World

The journal was edited by Professor Piet Eeckhout, Deputy-Dean, Vice Dean (Staffing) and Professor of EU Law at UCL Laws, Professor Christina Eckes, Professor of European law at the University of Amsterdam and director of the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG), and Anne Thies, Associate Professor in Law at the University of Reading.

‘Europe and the World: A Law Review’ aims to contribute to legal scholarship on the place of Europe in the world, with a particular but by no means exclusive focus on the EU’s external relations law.

Europe and the World

The journal serves as a forum where the national, international and EU perspectives meet and engage. The journal is therefore irreverent of traditional distinctions between EU, international, and national law. While primarily offering legal doctrinal and theoretical analyses, the journal also publishes multi-disciplinary work and political science and international relations contributions with an external perspective on the law of EU’s external relations.

The event was chaired by Caroline Wilson, Europe Director at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the keynote speech was delivered by Professor Miguel Poiares Maduro, Professor and Director of the Global Governance Programme at the European University Institute.
