The Meaning of Economic Freedoms of Movement » Call for papers (IUF – CNRS – UCA – AIDE) PhD and Post Doctorate Students deadline 31 January 2019

The third edition of the multidisciplinary, international and comparative doctoral sessions on the study of movement phenomena (IUF* projet “IFITIS”) asks what is “the meaning of  economic freedoms of movement”?

It forms part of a two-day event, combining:

  • an international, comparative and multidisciplinary doctoral session (1 half day) – following a public call for contributions
  • an international, comparative and multidisciplinary symposium (3 half days) – upon invitation (academics and researchers from Nice, Aix-Marseille, Paris, Germany, Canada, United States, Italy).

It is organised under the auspices of the Academic Institute of France (IUF), the Côte d’Azur University Law and Political Management Sciences Doctoral School (ED DESPEG), the Law, Economics and Management Research Group of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (GREDEG – CNRS) (main axis Sources and Methodology of Economic Law) and in partnership with the International Economic Law Association (AIDE).

Its aim is to provide a large space for discussion on the capacity of the various disciplines represented (including law, economics, management, philosophy, sociology, history and computer science) to question the meaning (reasons for being, justifications, purposes) of economic freedoms of movement  (free trade, international trade and European freedoms of movement).

The event has an inter-generational dimension in that it invites involvement from both young and experienced researchers.

It is international, comparative and multidisciplinary in nature as specialists recognised in their respective domains will participate in accordance with an innovative methodology.

  • Themes tackled :
    • What do the disciplines represented have to say on the meaning of their constructions (models, theories, practices) in general and about the economic freedoms to circulate in particular?
    • Contemporary dynamics of economic law and the search for meaning: what does the future hold?
    • The meaning of EU freedoms, 65 years on: should they be completely revisited?
    • The legal and negotiated framework of free trade and investments – can it actually revolve around a reflection on values?
    • What is the meaning of the “needs of international trade” in the past and for the future?
  • Place: Nice (Trotabas site – EUR law@société)
  • Language: French or English
  • Publication and appraisal: collective work with transcription of the presentations and discussions – video filming and broadcasting
  • Organisation: participants will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs as funded by their laboratory and  doctoral school. Meals (lunches on 23 and 24 May and dinner on 23 May) will be paid for by the organisers.
  • Submission and closing date for receipt of proposals 
  • Proposals (title and presentation of the proposed paper in max. 3000 – 4000 characters, including spaces) accompanied by the speaker’s CV to be sent before January 31, 2019 to .
  • Proposals will be examined by the scientific leads of this event upon the opinion of the scientific committee.
  • Priority will be given to proposals made in binomial or trinomial form and implying a multidisciplinary and/or comparative crossover approach.
