Judging scientific uncertainty

The General Court Perspective on discretion of EU authorities in complex assessments

Maja Brkan is the second speaker in a new series brought to you by the research project, Transformative Effects of Globalisation in Law. The Series brings together judicial practitioners from the CJEU and national courts to share their insights on how they handle scientific and technical complexity.

Dealing with Scientific and Technical Complexity: Perspectives from Judicial Practitioners

In this series of online talks, we will bring together judicial practitioners from the CJEU and national courts to share their insights on how they handle scientific or technical complexity (or uncertainty) in various policy domains. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of how this issue, which has been extensively studied by scholars, affects the actual decision-making process of judges. Each session will feature one speaker who will deliver a 30-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute discussion. We plan to have four online sessions, one per month from March to June 2024.

Convenors: Maria Weimer (UvA), Mariolina Eliantonio (Maastricht) and Pavlina Hubkova (Maastricht)
