UVA research priority area project 'The Architecture of Post-National Rulemaking: Views from Public International Law, European Public Law and European Private Law'
The University of Amsterdam has granted a funding to the research priority area Private and Public European law.
As of 1 January 2010 the CSECL, the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG) and the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL) conduct together the project The Architecture of Post-National Rulemaking: Views from Public International Law, European Public Law and European Private Law.
The CSECL recruited to this end a post-doctoral researcher. The project aims to provide new reflections and insights into the discussion on the legitimacy of post-national rulemaking starting from three distinct but in this project uniquely combined legal perspectives. The main objective is to relate perspectives from public international law, European public law and European private law on post-national rulemaking and to examine through a new lens any legitimacy concerns that may arise from the new arrangements. The project will further develop a normative framework for the analysis of post-national rulemaking applicable across all three areas. This will require theoretical work on the concepts of rulemaking and legitimacy starting from the perspectives of the three different areas of law.
