Call for papers

The Centre for European Studies (CES) of Faculty of Law and Political Sciences of the Széchenyi István University is proud to present a call for papers for the event “Days of EU Law” – Effects of EU law on national legislation. The conference is a part of the ‘Jean Monnet Module on EU Business Law’ (EUBLAW) project funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme in the Period of 2016 – 2019. The main aim of the conference is to discover the effects of EU regulation on the fields of international public law, financial law and business law.

Concept and main topics

The main purpose of the conference is to identify the relevant aspects of EU harmonization and effects on national legislation while shading light on its legal, political, economic and social implications. The Organising Committee of the conference welcomes paper proposals from varieties of disciplines including not only law, but also economics, international relations and political sciences.

The focus areas of the Conference include but are not limited to the following main themes:

Section 1 – 8 th November

Harmonization and globalization in the financial world – role of EU regulation

(presented in Hungarian, publications accepted also in English)

The global financial crisis started in 2008 showed how vulnerable the global financial market is and how fast the spill-overs of financial system have affected the real economy. The EU regulatory bodies has made significant efforts on minimizing the upcoming risks and negative events on financial markets, which has also affected the commercial transactions. This section is opened for discussing the wider issues of public and private law connected to international and EU financing.

The event is also hosting the ‘Annual Meeting of Financial Law Lecturers of Hungary’. We welcome our dear Colleagues from the whole country to discuss the current issues of financial law influenced by the EU.

Section 2 – 9 th November

The European Union in a globalized world – perspectives of public and private international law

(presented in English)

The European Union has emerged as an important and influential actor of international life in today’s globalized world. This prominent role has created several conjunctions between EU law and public and private international law, which call for constant scientific scrutiny. The European Union as a subject of international law has undertaken international obligations and has become party to several international treaties. The resulting interplay between the international obligations of member states, the norms of EU law and state sovereignty definitely requires scientific analysis. The means and methods of human rights protection in international law and in the European Union should also be examined. The relevant academic discourse focuses on both the universal and regional protection of human rights and the respect for specific human rights.

The fundamental freedoms of the European Union have broadened international economic relations, and the ensuing transboundary private legal relationships have given particular importance to the implementation of norms of private international law. This raises further questions relating to private international law and the European Union. It should also be kept in mind that the actors of European business life are often transnational enterprises, whose activities and domestic legal environments have an influence on the conduct of business even outside Europe. The role of these global business enterprises should be examined from the points of view of international economic law and EU business law, as well.

Section 3 – 10 th November

The attractiveness of the EU business law and the consequences on national trade law

(presented in English and Hungarian)

After a period of stagnation in the multilateral trade negotiations, the European Union has shifted its focus to the bilateral trade relations and entered into trade talks with a number of countries including the major actors of the world trade. The scene is dominated by the new generation of preferential trade agreements and trade and investment agreements that are of comprehensive character addressing not only traditional trade issues, but reflecting on the social implications of the trade liberalisation as well. The section is intended to consider topics on how the new objectives of the EU external trade policy can influence the member states. The section is also opened for any current topics related to EU Business Law in general.

Section 4 – 10 th November

Public Procurement Regulation as framework of public spending

(presented in Hungarian, publications accepted also in English)

In 2014 the EU has adopted 3 new directives on public procurement, which effected every county’s public procurement regulation. The change has reached a level that – for example – the Hungarian government decided to adopt a completely new code on the subject. However, not only the primary and secondary legal sources of the EU has effected the national legislation, but also the judgements of the Court of Justice of the European Union. According to the statistics, 16% of the GDP is spent through public procurement contracts, so we cannot underestimate the importance of this field and its effect on European businesses. The aim the section is to have a closer look at the recent changes of the public procurement regulation both on EU and national level.
