Vulnerabilities under the Global Protection Regime

    Summary:

    The full consortium project will provide a comprehensive analysis of how the protection regimes of select countries address the vulnerabilities of protection seekers through a set of rules, institutions, practices and power relations, and how these in turn affect the experiences of protection seekers. The select countries are in Europe (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Norway), North America (Canada), the Middle East (Lebanon) and Africa (Uganda and South Africa). The vulnerabilities encountered by protection seekers will be documented and analyzed with a dynamic approach, which studies the evolution of vulnerabilities over time from the introduction of an application for a ‘protection status’ to a final decision on the application.

Conference: Adversarial legalism à l’Européen, April 28-29, 2011

    Summary:

    On April 28 and 29, 2011, EUCE York, in cooperation with York’s Centre for Public Policy & Law (YCPPL), Office of the Principal, Glendon College, the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost and the Law and Society Program in the Department of Social Science, are pleased to present “Adversarial legalism à l’Européen”, a two-day conference which will bring together younger and more established scholars from the EU, the United States and Canada who are working on law and politics in a comparative context.

    Description:

    The panels will explore the recent interest in the growth of the “American way of doing law” in different policy areas and countries in Europe and beyond. European governance, argue some scholars, is being transformed by a dramatic rise in litigation that has brought with it an expansion of EU rights, empowerment of national and EU level courts and better access to justice for private litigants. The consequences of an American-style adversarial legalism to Europe and beyond are far from clear. Not only that, other scholars dispute the assessment, arguing that entrenched European legal culture and the political organization impede a movement towards an American-style of law and litigation there. The opening address and plenary session will take place in the afternoon of Thursday, April 28, 2011, followed by a welcoming reception and dinner. Prof. Dan Kelemen (Jean Monnet Chair and Director, Centre for European Studies at Rutgers University) has agreed to give the opening address. This will be based on his new book, Eurolegalism: The Transformation of Law and Regulation in the European Union, a recent publication of Harvard University Press. Friday, April 29, 2011 will see panels run all day. The workshop will be held at Glendon College, York University’s bilingual (and picturesque) campus.

Securitization in the EU: Legal and Policy Implications for Canada, Dec 2/3, 2011

    Description:

    How have states balanced the goal of collective security with that of upholding individual rights? What factors have shaped the different policy choices in North America vs. Europe? What role have courts and international human rights norms played in these insecure times? Securitization, argue many scholars, has also adversely affected the way in which advanced industrialized states make immigration and asylum policy, in particular with respect to deportation and detentions. At the same time that humanitarian protection and liberal immigration policies are under threat, human smuggling and trafficking is on the rise, reflecting a contradiction between the tough restrictionist rhetoric and the reality on the ground. This Workshop will focus on matters related to law and security in the EU, and will necessarily intersect with criminal law enforcement and human rights constraints.

    Description:

    The European Union Centre of Excellence (EUCE) was established at York University in the Fall of 2009 with the receipt of a grant from the European Commission in Brussels. Housed at York’s Canadian Centre for German and European Studies, the EUCE at York has as its twin aims the integration of York University’s existing research, teaching, outreach, and networking activities on Europe and the EU and the introduction and facilitation of new activities, at York and in the wider region, promoting knowledge and understanding of the EU and the importance of the EU-Canada relationship. During the grant period of 2009-2012, the EUCE at York will coordinate a variety of activities focused on aspects of EU policy and EU-Canada relations. Among the planned activities are a number of academic research conferences, workshops and seminars related to issues salient to EU-Canada matters in the areas of law and business as well as outreach activities intended to engage the broader public (including high school students).
