088 The EU's External AFSJ Law & Governance: Past, Present and Future Relations with Non-EU States & Organizations

Wednesday, July 12, 2017: 4:00 PM-5:45 PM
Gilbert Scott Building - Room 656A (University of Glasgow)
The EU's Area of Freedom Security and Justice (AFSJ) forms a distinctive field of EU law and governance in fields  closely linked to the sovereignty of the Nation State, areas of tremendous sensitivity involving many norms, laws, standards and modes of governance. Various crises from the migrant crises to Brexit have amplified the question of the standards and norms applicable to and followed by the EU in its AFSJ law and governance and how they relate to third countries and organisations standards and norms. This is particularly so in the case of the external dimension of the AFSJ.  In turn, how those countries and organisations understand, apply and accept them will be of considerable significance going forward. They will arguably shape the future of the AFSJ and the future of European security, broadly defined, both 'inside out' and 'outside in'.  Brexit provides a point to reflect upon what the norms of the UK will be going forward- where will it take them from in the former domains of the AFSJ? What organisations will inform their practices, rules, standards and governance? At what point does the EU's norm promotion stop and start? What are the criteria for effective cooperation with non-EU States in the future? How does Brexit change the law and governance dynamic? How should we understand the new relationship dynamic with the EU?  The panel considers casestudies from law and political science that examine the EU's relations with external organisation as regards norms, laws, standards and governance .
