The New History of EU Law: Promises and Challenges

On March 20, 2014, Bill Davies, Assistant Professor of Justice, Law & Criminology at American University and a European Union Center Visiting Scholar, gave a lecture entitled "The New History of EU Law: Promises and Challenges."

Dr. Davies is approaching the study of the European Union legal system from a fresh perspective by critically examining the development of the constitutional practice of law in the EU from a historical perspective. Dr. Davies has traveled extensively to uncover the primary documents that will contribute to a fresh and empirically accurate narrative of the emergence of the European constitutional system and to answer the question of how the controversial consolidation of power at the European level has been received in the EU’s member states. Dr Davies recently published a monograph on the German reception of European law. Germany’s relationship with the European Court of Justice has been fraught with challenges and it is Germany’s reactions to the decisions of the court that largely have, and will, determine its future.
