EIQ Annual Lecture 2015: Political Community and EU Law

Hosted by the European Institute



Professor Damian Chalmers

Professor of European Union Law


Professor Sara Hobolt

Sutherland Chair in European Institutions

On the evening before voters head to the ballot box in the UK’s general elections, Professor Damian Chalmers will be giving this year’s Annual Lecture in the LSE ‘Europe in Question’ Series (LEQS). The elections have significant implications for the UK’s future in the European Union (EU), while simultaneous developments on the continent pose questions of how the EU itself will change in the foreseeable future. At this defining moment, Professor Chalmers will address the issue of political community and the role of EU law. The editors of the LEQS Discussion Paper Series will announce the winners of the LEQS Doctoral Paper Award at the event.

Damian Chalmers is Professor of European Union Law at LSE. His visiting positions include being a Jean Monnet Fellow at the European University Institute (2003-2004) and Visiting Professorships at the College of Europe and the Instituto de Empresa.

Sara B. Hobolt is Sutherland Chair in European Institutions in the European Institute at LSE.
