Common Constitutional Traditions in Europe Project Team Meeting and Roundtable


The team of the ELI Common Constitutional Traditions in Europe project met on 21 May in Aix-en-Provence (France) to discuss developments in the project. They also held a Roundtable with representatives of two other European projects that are looking into broad questions of European constitutionalism.

Among various topics discussed in the morning, the Team focused on finetuning the planned output of the project. As the Team aims at filling Article 6.2 of the Treaty of the European Union with content, it will try to elaborate a tool for judges and lawyers litigating before the Court of Justice of European Union, with accompanying explanations. The Team also planned the work ahead, including the collection and analysis of national reports.

In the afternoon session, the Team was joined by the representatives of the Reconciling Europe with its Citizens through Democracy and Rule of Law project (Reconnect H2020) and Common Core of European Administrative Law (CoCEAL) project. The Roundtable facilitated the exchange of approaches taken by each group and allowed for discussion on different methodologies applied to each project. 

The ELI would like to thank Guy Scoffoni from the University of Aix-en-Provence for organising both events. You can see the agenda of the Roundtable here.
