PhD seminars

PhD summer seminar on EU law


The interuniversity PhD seminar in European law is organised every two years as part of Marianne Dony’s Jean Monnet Chair.


This interuniversity and international seminar is designed to encourage exchanges between researchers and universities. More specifically, its aim is to give around 15 or so PhD students the opportunity to explain how their research work is progressing to several guest professors and discuss it with them, to improve their methodological approach and to pool their experience in terms of how they respond to particular difficulties that they may encounter during their research. The stay-related costs of the participants are paid for by the Centre for European Law. The working languages are English and French.


The sixth summer seminar in EU law will be held from 30 August to 1 September 2017 at the Institute of European Studies of the ULB.


PhD seminar in European criminal law


In addition, a PhD seminar specialising in European criminal law has been organised every year since 2010 in the framework of the ECLAN network.


Since 2010, the ECLAN network has been organising a PhD seminar in European criminal law every year. The seminar takes place in different universities from one year to the next: ULB (2010), Luxembourg University (2011), Bayonne University (2013), Queen Mary University (2014) and Copenhagen University (2015). The 2016 PhD seminar was held at the Vienna University of Economics and Business on 20 and 21 October 2016.


The PhD seminar is aimed at PhD students working in the area of European criminal law and holders of a degree in law, political sciences or international studies.
