HUNGARIAN PARTICULARISM IN THE EUROPEAN UNION: POLITICO-LEGAL PERSPECTIVES

 The conference explores whether, from a legal and political perspective, the idea of a Hungarian ‘Sonderweg’ in the European Union actually makes sense. In particular, it examines whether a ‘selective’ understanding of EU obligations and other EU commitments – and, in general, the emphasis on national particularism in the European Union – has any public benefits. The conference revisits the general benefits and public importance of EU law, and the relevance of ‘shared interests’ behind the Treaty commitmentson one hand, and the frameworks allowing and fostering Member State diversity in the EU, and Member State practices of protectionism, exclusionism and particularism on the other. Finally, it reflects on the consequences for good governance and administration where governments act under the scope of EU law.

Keynote speakers include: Damian Chalmers (LSE), Christopher Bovis (Hull) and Catherine Dupré (Exeter).
