Social rights in Southern Europe

Dear colleagues,

We are Mariana Canotilho (University of Coimbra and Portuguese Constitutional Court) and Luís Vale (University of Coimbra). As we mentioned during this working group's meeting in Oslo, we are interested in establishing a sub-group of people who are willing to study the situation of social rights in Southern Europe, especially having in mind the economic crisis scenario and the impact of EU law and of EU/Troika demands in the protection of such rights, as well as the relationship between national constitutional provisions, EU fundamental rights' norms and all the legal framework that has been set up to tackle the crisis.

Perhaps we could start by finding out how many of us are interested in this subject, by comenting this post. If you have any other suggestions on how we should work, please go ahead and tell us.
