European Papers Jean Monnet Network Summer School
Gaetano Morelli Lectures (6th Edition 2021)
An International Law of the European Union?
6-8 October 2021 – Law School | Sapienza University of Rome
The idea to convene in Rome on a yearly basis to discuss key issues of contemporary international law is naturally connected with the glorious Institute of International Law of Sapienza University of Rome. The story of this institution has accompanied the development of international law in the XX Century, which the members of the Institute have considerably contributed to. Naming the Lectures after Gaetano Morelli is thus more than an individual tribute; it is a collective acknowledgement to a legal tradition, which we intend to renew and to innovate every year, brick after brick.
The EP-JMN Summer School - Gaetano Morelli Lectures are mainly addressed to young scholars from all over the world. They aim at offering conceptual tools for appraising controversial knots of international law in its continuing development. There is a lot of sense, in our view, for doing this. International law is one of the branches of legal science where the pressing need for change goes hand in hand with the persistence of its basic legal paradigms. It is this unique blend of theory and practice, of tradition and innovation, which makes international law so challenging and ultimately explains its on-going intellectual fascination.
It is our hope that EP-JMN Summer School - Gaetano Morelli Lectures will promote a model of learning international law: offering diverse, if not even antithetical, perspectives among which everyone can find its way; a dialectical approach to legal studies which will hopefully become the distinctive feature of this initiative.
The EP-JMN Summer School - Gaetano Morelli Lectures are organised by the Department of Legal and Economic Studies of Sapienza University of Rome.
The EP-JMN Summer School - Gaetano Morelli Lectures (6th Edition 2021) will focus on the impact of the law and practice of the European Union on the development of international law. The underlying idea is to explore how international law develops, hopefully progressively, on the thrust of the European Union as a global international law maker.
