The academic staff of the Jean Monnet Module Solidarity in European Union Law is happy to announce the SoEULaw lecture “Social Rights and Solidarity in Europe“, taking place on 20 November 2019.

Social Rights and Solidarity in Europe – Prof. Elisabetta Catelani, Prof. Francesca Martines

The lecture will deal with Social Rights and Solidarity in EU law. Special attention will be given to the implementation of constitutional social rights, such as those related to labour. The migration flows for labour in EU will be analysed as a context for implementation of solidarity. The main issue of this course will therefore be to understand the role of solidarity in access to justice and justiciability throughout EU courts.
