1. Conference: Colonialism and the EU Legal Order, University of Copenhagen, 29-30 September. In 1957, when the European Union (then EEC) was founded, four of the original six Member States were colonial powers. This conference will bring lawyers, legal historians, sociologists and political scientists together to discuss the ways in which colonialism has shaped the EU legal order. The reverberations of colonialism will be addressed with respect to the construction of EU law in areas such as development aid; trade and free movement; the interpretation of specific legal categories; as well as the in the re-emergence of actors; and the setting up of institutions. Ultimately, this conference will reflect on the implications of these imprints of colonialism, for the individual subjected to EU law and for the societies that the EU legal order touches.
