Globalisation and Transnational Policing
21 April 2017, 3pm :: The Bingham Room :: The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn
Approaching the end of its ninth Academic Year, the Center for Transnational Legal Studies is fostering its connection with the London academic institutions by organising the Annual Academic Conference.
As every year, the selected topic is particularly up-to-date. Unfortunately, the most recent news shows Europe being repeatedly affected by an uncontrolled flow of violence, reflecting an ‘over-simplistic’ criminal pattern (like hitting crowds with vehicles), escaping traditional policing controls.
Professor Benjamin Bowling, King’s College London, will be delivering a speech about 'Transnational Policing in Europe and its Local Effects', presenting a project he is leading with Dr Charline Kopf. The abstract is available here.
Professors Julie O’Sullivan (Georgetown Law Center, Washington DC, USA) and Serena Quattrocolo (University of Torino, Italy), academic co-directors of CTLS, will be discussing the issue with the speaker.
All colleagues and students are invited to take part to the lecture and the following discussion.
Speaker: Professor Benjamin Bowling (The Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London)
Discussants: Professor Julie O'Sullivan (Georgetown Law Center) and Professor Serena Quattrocolo (University of Torino)
A reception with wine and soft drinks will follow the conference.
The conference will take place in The Bingham Room at The Honourable Society of Gray's Inn, 10-11 South Square, WC1R 5HP.
