Seminar in EU-Law with Professor of Governance and Sociology of Law at the Copenhagen Business School Poul Fritz Kjær. Please register by 6 October 2021. Zoom link the link will be sent out to registered participants on 7 October 2021.
This seminar presents Law and Political Economy (LPE) as a new and still evolving analytical approach. LPE serves as an alternative to both Ordoliberal and Law & Economics approaches to law combining legal insights with a broad set of inputs from anthropology, history, sociology, political economy as well as economics. The talk will situate LPE in the broader legal landscape and in relation to dominating paradigms of law with a special focus on EU law. The talk will be based on but also go beyond Poul F. Kjaer (ed.): ‘The Law of Political Economy: Transformation in the Function of Law (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2020)’. It is advisable to read the introduction chapter prior to the seminar.
Discussant: Professor Mauro Zamboni (Stockholm University)
