The ELJ's For and Against Series

Most academic writing comes in the form of a long monologue. But all fundamental problems are by definition complex both in factual and in normative terms. The For and Against Series of the European Law Journal aims at thinking problems in between two opposite views. Each session is organised around one topic and two speakers who will engage with each other and will encourage the audience and later the readership to look at the two (or more) sides of each fundamental question being debated.

ELJ's For and Against Series #1 is co-organized by the Department of Public and International Law at UiO's Law Faculty on 27 April at 12:00.
