elan.jm@unipi.it
DEADLINE JANUARY 15, 2020

The Department of Law of the University of Pisa hosts a two-days international workshop on Gender based approaches to the law and juris dictio in the European Union on June 19-20, in Pisa (Italy), within the frame of the European Law & Gender Jean Monnet Module (ELaN).
Young scholars are invited to submit original proposals concerning the interplay of E.U. law and national laws and, conversely, how national patterns to equality but also persisting conditions of discrimination shape the development of the existing rights and liberties framework at both national and European level.
Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:

– The idea of gender equality in the European Union after the Lisbon Treaty
– The repercussions of European law on gender equality and non-discrimination on national legal orders (constitutional law; labor, welfare and social security law; contract law and market regulation; property law; family and reproductive law; criminal law)
– … and vice versa: the impact of national perspectives on equality, non-discrimination and the concept of gender on European Union Law (constitutional law; horizontal effect of fundamental rights; theories of justice; feminist theories)
– The intersection of gender with identity categories of ethnicity, class, religion, sexuality, age and ability throughout Europe (legal theory; freedom of speech; non-discrimination; contract and market regulation; health law; criminal law)
– Critical legal conflicts concerning women and marriage, family and reproduction, education, work, healthcare, fundamental rights in Europe (also in an historical perspective)
– Analyses of CJEU and ECtHR case law on discrimination based on gender and sexuality and its impact on national legal systems
– Gender litigation in European Member States
– Different patterns to equality in the laws of European Member States
– Reasons, techniques, and practices of gender mainstreaming within the legislative process
– The Law and Economics of gender and non-discrimination (economic development, corporate and tax law, welfare and labor law, family law)
