What does Citizenship mean in Europe?

In an exciting collaboration between Bangor University Law School and the European School of Law (based at Toulouse University), a PhD Workshop on the broad theme of “Citizenship” will take place in Bangor on Thursday/Friday, 3rd and 4th May 2018. This year’s workshop builds on European School of Law PhD workshops held in Toulouse in 2016 and Barcelona in 2017. 

Approximately 25 PhD candidates will speak at this year’s workshop, on a diversity of legal domains to include: Refugee Law; European Labour Law; Citizenship and Italian Constitutional Law; The notion of ‘European Citizenship’, analysed in the context of CJEU case-law; Private International Law; EU Data Protection Law and, the very topical, Notion of Citizenship in a post-Brexit Britain. 

Many of these PhD students are based at universities which are part of the prestigious European Law School Network, which covers 16 mainly European universities but also universities in North America, Russia and Lebanon. Bangor Law School is a proud UK member of this influential academic network and, like the other members, runs a double degree programme with the University of Toulouse. Bangor Law School’s Double (Dual) Degree in English Law and French Law has proven very popular and, annually, the School welcomes approximately 25 new students from the Law Faculty of the University of Toulouse.  

The PhD Workshop social events include: a workshop dinner (on the evening of Thursday 03/05) and visits to local places of historical/cultural importance to include Bangor Cathedral, Penrhyn Castle and Caernarfon Castle.

Professor Dermot Cahill, Head of Bangor University Law School, and his academic staff look forward to meeting all Workshop participants and their academic advisors at the Bangor PhD Workshop in early May.
