Professor Dora Kostakopoulou Talk on ‘Contemporary Perspectives of EU Citizenship’

Lincoln Law School – Law in a Global Context Research Group Seminar – 13 May 2015

On 13 May, Professor Dora Kostakopoulou gave a talk on ‘Contemporary Perspectives of EU Citizenship’. By exploring different theorisations of the European integration process and in particular using the lens of institutional constructivism Dora Kostakopoulou traced and examined the development of the evolving concept of European Union Citizenship. By looking at key decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union she reflected on the problems concerning the development of a European identity vis-à-vis national identities and, on more general level, the interconnectedness between the incremental and transformative change of the European integration process and the evolution of European Union Citizenship.

Dora Kostakopoulou is Professor of European Union Law, European Integration and Public Policy at the School of Law of the  University of Warwick. She joined Lincoln Law School as Visiting Professor in 2015.

About Dr Samantha Velluti

Previously at Manchester and Liverpool Law Schools as lecturer in EU law. I have researched and written extensively in the area of EU governance and constitutionalism and the Open Method of Co-ordination in the context of employment, gender equality and immigration. More recently, I have been carrying out research in the field of EU asylum law and policy examining legislative developments and the judicial activism of the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Other areas of research include the promotion of human rights and international labour standards in the EU external trade law and policy and in this context the relationship between the European Union and other International organisations as well as its relationship with third countries. I welcome collaborative research projects, including inter-disciplinary work, and Ph.D proposals focusing on these areas of research.
