3. Call for Papers: Between Crisification and Legal Resilience – Change and Stability in EU External Relations Law. In recent years, crisis narratives have dominated EU legal discourse. While traditionally crises are seen as moments of rapture in a continuum of normal law and policy-making within a given governance field, the recent proliferation of crises – whether real or perceived – has arguably led to a perpetual state of exceptionalism. This ‘crisification’ raises a whole host of questions for EU law – and for EU external relations law in particular. The conference aims to explore the overarching topic of ‘crisification’ of EU external relations law and invites critical reflection on different aspects of the debate. For more information, see here
