On 17 and 18 June 2021, Prof. Mariolina Eliantonio, Annalisa Volpato and Sabrina Röttger-Wirtz are organising the conference ‘Global Standards and EU Law – Challenges for European Administrative Law’ (via Zoom).
In this conference, the speakers will critically reflect on the increasing incorporation of global standards in the EU legal system and the legal questions raised by this phenomenon. It will provide an account of the various ways of implementation of these standards via European legislative, non-legislative and soft law measures, in important sectors such as environmental, health or financial regulation. Furthermore, it will examine how these standards are formed on global level, and, based on this analysis, question the extent to which they respect basic tenets of European administrative law, such as transparency and participation. Finally, it will consider questions of legitimacy of global standards in relation to the multi-layered nature of the EU legal system, the judicial use made of them, and their role when the EU operates as global actor.
