Call For Papers



Osijek, Croatia

June, 14 - 15 2018

In 2017 Faculty of Law Osijek has organized the first International Scientific Conference „Procedural aspects of EU law’’ that took place on 6th and 7th April 2017 within the project Jean Monnet Chair in EU Procedural Law.

Since Croatia lacks conferences focusing on EU law, young academics and researchers have limited opportunity to present their papers concerning EU law. „Procedural aspects of EU law’’ conference offered them an opportunity to conduct research concerning relevant topics, and the possibility to publish a paper in book of conference proceedings. Although the „Procedural aspects of EU law’’ conference was open for all researches, emphasis was on the region. We had researchers from neighbouring countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Slovenia, Hungary and Macedonia but also from Greece, Luxemburg and Netherlands. In total, we had 50 participants from 9 countries, altogether 41 presentations at the conference. Submitted papers that were accepted, went through peer review procedure and were published in the book of Conference proceedings Procedural aspects of EU Law’’ as part of the EU and comparative law issues and challenges series – ECLIC. The book is available on-line at  conference-2017.php.

Due to the very positive experiences and a high interest of participants, we have decided to organize a new conference in 2018. Therefore, we would like to invite You to the 2nd International Scientific Conference EU Law in context – adjustment to membership and challenges of the enlargment (ECLIC) that will take place on 14 and 15 June 2018. at the  Faculty of Law Josip Juraj Strossmayer University in Osijek.
