New UNIO issue now online

By the Editorial Team

The Editorial Board is happy to announce that a new issue of the UNIO – EU Law Journal is now online. The 8(1) issue of UNIO mixes contributions from highly respected scholars and from young scholars and addresses issues such as democracy and rule of law, protection of the environment, discrimination and equality, intergenerational solidarity  and  social  sustainability, consumer protection, and research in humanist legal sciences.

This issue also marks a major change in the publishing schedule at UNIO. UNIO wants to be able to continue delivering high-quality publications while keeping their timeliness. For this reason, we will start publishing on a rolling basis. That is to say, papers will be published as we receive them and compiled in an issue afterwards.

We hope this new system pleases both our readers and authors and would like to remind you that we are accepting submissions at UNIO and also at our blog.

You may find UNIO’s 8(1) issue here.

In order to join the commemorations and to debate those landmarks, the Centre of Studies in EU Law (CEDU) of University of Minho alongside the Representation of the European Parliament in Portugal distinguish the milestones by promoting the conference “40/30: from the constitutional project to the integration project – hopes, scepticism and reality in a political-constitutional debate” which will be held at the Law School of UMinho on 28th October 2016. The organizers’ partnership intends to perceive the path made upon these 40 years of Portuguese Constitution, 30 of which in interaction with the European project: what was meant originally has or has not been accomplished? Which adaptations, where has it lead us, where are we headed?, questions asked in an intergenerational perspective and in dialogue between scholars and MEPs.

Accompanying the conference, UNIO – EU Law Journal of CEDU issues this call for papers on the theme of the event seeking contributions from EU Law, Constitutional Law, International Law, Political Sciences, etc. for a special edition. The submissions are open until 1st of October.
