Our Group

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.

  1. I'll be pleased to be involved in this vanguard. Please kindly confirm to me whether this study is a postgraduate study. I'm interested in a doctoral study if in the offing. I'll be available in any capacity to participate in this study and contribute to research. Thanks!

  2. Dear Mariana and Luís,

    thank you for this invitation. As discussed in our meeting in Oslo, I would be very much interested in participating in this research group. I could contribute by reporting about the situation in my country of origin, Greece.

    I first suggestion on how we could proceed, would be to create a shared folder (in google drive or dropbox) where members of this group could upload and exchange related documents.

    Looking forward to our cooperation.

    Best wishes,

    Anastasia Poulou

  3. Dear Mariana and Luís,

    thank you for this invitation. I could not be in Oslo, but I would be very much interested in participating in this research group. I could contribute by reporting about the situation in my country, Italy, but I also study the Case of Portugal and, more in generale, the "EU level".

    I first suggestion on how we could proceed, would be to create a shared folder (in google drive or dropbox) where members of this group could upload and exchange related documents.

    Looking forward to our cooperation.
    Best wishes
