This year marks both the 60th anniversary of the Rome treaties and the start of the United Kingdom's negotiations to withdraw from the European Union. To celebrate the occasion, the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM) convenes a Workshop to provide a forum for a debate on the role of national and european parliaments. The Workshop will take place on 18 and 19 January 2018 at Maastricht University – Campus Brussels.
The center welcomes proposals for papers addressing the four following themes:
> The Role of Parliaments in Brexit
> Parliaments and the domestic dimension of EU affairs
> Parliaments and the external dimension of EU affairs
> Parliaments in the EU- an outlook
These proposed topics are indicative and additional proposals fitting the defined themes are welcome.
Abstracts (250 words) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October, 20th 2017.
First versions of the presented papers will have to be submitted by January, 8th 2018. The organisers intend to publish selected papers in an edited volume, subject to review of the final version of the papers. Some funding is available to support the travel and accommodation expenses of accepted participants.
