SoLaR – European Network on Soft Law Research: final workshop and disemination at the IEP breakfast debate
News from Nov 11, 2019
Financed by the European Commission, the Academic Network of Soft Law Research (SoLaR) aimed at stimulating the debate between academics and practitioners on the national role of EU soft law. SoLaR asked whether and how non-binding EU instruments are used by national administrations when implementing EU policies and by national courts when ruling in cases falling within the scope of application of EU law.
The final event of the SoLaR project took place from 17-19 October 2019 in Aix en Provence (France). Country teams presented the results of the project (to be published by Bloomsbury as an edited collection in 2020), introduced the policy recommendations and discussed follow-up activities. This working paper presents the results of research carried out by the social policy team (led by Miriam Hartlapp) of the SoLaR network.
On 6 November 2019 in Berlin Prof. Dr. Miriam Hartlapp and Dr. Andreas Hofmann disemminated results of the interdisciplinary research project SoLaR at the Institute for European Politics (IEP) in a Breakfast Debate titled “Opportunity or obstructive? EU Soft Law in national practice”.
