Call for Proposals: EU External Relations Issues

The University of Luxembourg will host a series of workshops on current EU external relations issues, as part of the project “The European Union as Global International Actor and the Question of Competence.” Each workshop will be followed by a round table which brings together university professors and practitioners from the European institutions. The series will “focus on the interaction of the principle of conferral with the practice of EU external relations, as well as the interplay of conferred competences and other principles and objectives of EU law.”

March 31, 2017: Competence-related issues raised in the context of the conclusion of the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled.
