The University of Turku Faculty of Law and Åbo Akademi University Institute for Human Rights have the pleasure of inviting you to the Turku Law School Seventh Annual Lecture on Tuesday 23 October at 10 am in Calonia Auditorio (Caloniankuja 3).

The lecture will be given by Professor Jo Shaw from University of Edinburgh (the Salvesen Chair of European Institutions).

The topic is "Integration, Dis-integration and Citizenship in a Troubled European Union".

This lecture will examine the impact of the European Union upon citizenship, and will explore two cases of Brexit and stalled enlargement in south east Europe in order to study the partial, fragmentary and contested governance of citizenship. The case studies place EU citizenship into a wider political and socio-economic context, demonstrating its central importance as an enabler of personal freedom. At the same time, they highlight how the denial or loss of EU citizenship can engender individual strategies to recover lost or denied benefits. From the analysis, parallels emerge between EU citizenship and national citizenship; both offer a promise of equality, but a reality of differentiation and inequality.

The lecture will be followed by discussion. More about Professor Jo Shaw.
Linkki: The Turku Law School Lecture has been arranged since the year 2012.
