The project "The Foundations of the European Union as a Polity", which is part of the research carried out by Academy of Finland Research Fellow Massimo Fichera, is delighted to invite submissions for a Young Researchers Symposium on the Future of Europe, to be held on 8-9 May, 2018.

The keynote speech will be delivered by prof.

The symposium is intended for both PhD candidates and early-career Post-doctoral researchers in law and cognate disciplines, as well as law practitioners and civil servants. Prof. Weiler has kindly agreed to provide feedback on the papers.

The workshop, organised at the Faculty of Law, University of Helsinki, brings together promising junior researchers to encourage them to present their work and receive feedback from their peers and senior academics.

Abstracts are welcome within the broad topic of the “Future of Europe”.
