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.
