THE NEW TERRAIN OF SOCIAL EUROPE: FREE MOVEMENT OF WORKING PEOPLE AND EMU
SPEAKER: Claire Kilpatrick (European University Institute)
Thursday 4 May 2017, from 6-7pm
UCL Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Wilkins Building, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
Accredited with 1 CPD hour by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board
About this lecture:
This analysis considers two central new policy locations and discourses in which Social Europe has become embedded over the last decade: free movement of the economically active and EMU. It investigates the actors and processes shaping free movement and EMU and, crucially, the policy discourses in which the new Social Europe is being constructed. These are discourses including fairness and of acceptable and unacceptable trade-offs.
About the speaker:
Claire Kilpatrick is Professor of International European and Social Law at the European University Institute, Florence and Co-Director of the Academy of European Law. Before coming to the EUI in 2011 she worked at LSE and before that at Cambridge University. Her interests lie mainly in the law and policy construction of Social Europe, especially the EU’s roles. Her interests in free movement and Social Europe stem particularly from new developments sparked by enlargement and challenges posed by Brexit. Another focus of her recent work has focused on EMU and Social Europe with a particular focus on sovereign debt loan arrangements and legal challenges to those arrangements from those within debtor EU states. She is a member of the Editorial Boards of the Industrial Law Journal and the International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations and of the Advisory Boards of the European Journal of Legal Studies and the European Law Journal.
