Presentation of book gathering interviews held with well-known personalities in the field of European Union law
„Interviewing European Union. Wilhelm Meister in EU Law”
Romania is one of the most recent Member States of the European Union. Professionals and researchers in the relevant field strive to ensure correct interpretation and application of European Union law.
Training programmes, higher education curricula included, along with research activities performed in Romania are disparate; information on European Union law is still received apparently without any solid domestic reflection.
The book will feature interviews with well-known personalities in the field of European Union law – several (former and current) members of the Court of Justice of the European Union, professors, (younger) researchers – both from the academia and practitioners, and is meant to provide the Romanian legal community with individual experiences of those interviewed. We think the work would consolidate the research framework in Romania and that such an approach would prove as useful to those interested in the field of European Union law.
Each interview will seek to communicate opinions concerning novelties brought by the Lisbon Treaty and by the recent case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, issues raised in research methods in the relevant field of European Union law along with personal experiences concerning the same field.
The work will be published with a foremost publisher in Romania, both in English/French (languages the interviews are conducted) and Romanian (in translation) and also a distribution to around 100 libraries in Member States of the European Union will be sought.
