“A Single Market for the 21st Century”: Challenges and Perspectives May 7, 2009

Posted by liverpoolchamber in Business.

The Liverpool Law School is organising a conference exploring the Commission’s 2007 Single Market Review.

The conference will be held on Thursday 25th June 2009 at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (Monarchs Quay, Liverpool Waterfront).

The conference seeks to deliberate critically upon some of the major issues identified in the Commission Review: for example, how cross border trade can be reconciled with environmental concerns about issues such as “food miles”; how the role of collective labour organisations can be adapted to the demands of the Single Market; how to secure more effective protection for consumers faced with the growing complexity of international trading relationships; the need for reform of banking regulation in the light of the current credit crisis, and indeed the capacity of Single Market to resist protectionist pressures in the face of the global economic downturn; and how to promote the European version of market integration as a “global brand”.

Speakers, discussants and chairs include: Jörgen Holmquist (European Commission); Catherine Barnard (University of Cambridge); Niamh Nic Shuibhne (University of Edinburgh); Geert van Calster (University of Leuven); Joanne Scott (University College London); Ioannis Lianos (University College London); Dermot Cahill (University of Bangor); Thomas Ackermann (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg); Anu Arora (University of Liverpool); Marise Cremona (European University Institute); Luigi Daniele (University of Rome “Tor Vergata”); Sacha Prechal (University of Utrecht); Jukka Snell (University of Swansea); Eleanor Spaventa (Durham University).

The conference is generously sponsored by the European Commission Representation in the United Kingdom.

The provisional programme, conference booking form and further information are all available at the online here.

Please note that places are limited and registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis (further booking requests will be held on stand-by in the event of cancellations).  For further information about the conference, please contact Professor Michael Dougan (m.dougan@liv.ac.uk) or Dr Arianna Andreangeli (A.Andreangeli@liverpool.ac.uk).
