6th International Scientific Conference on EU and Comparative Law Issues and Challenges

“The recovery of the EU and strengthening the ability to respond to new challenges – legal and economic aspects

9 – 10th June 2022

Faculty of Law, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek


The Faculty of Law Osijek at the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek is organising the 6th International Conference on EU and Comparative Law Issues and Challenges, taking place from 9 to 10th June 2022.

For the past two years, the world and society as a whole have faced the challenges of a pandemic caused by Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The last ECLIC conference was dedicated to finding the ideal way to adapt to the conditions of the new normal, both in the context of applying the legal norm to everyday life situations and the need to raise awareness of new social needs. The pandemic still holds us firmly in its embrace, but the experiences and acquired knowledge of living in different and changed conditions of everyday life have created some new written rules and good customs that allow us to function in new social circumstances. However, it is not enough to just live in new circumstances, but one should look for ways to recover from the consequences and build immunity for future challenges. Therefore, the organizing committee decided to dedicate this year's conference to the legal and economic aspects of the recovery and resilience of the European Union in the context of COVID 19 reality.

We are looking forward to receiving manuscripts on the themes presented below:

  • papers analysing European responses to the challenges of the rule of law and the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms
  • papers discussing governance and policy making process
  • papers addressing how the pandemic is used to justify the political agenda related to it
  • papers presenting impact of covid 19 pandemic on the global and national economy

The conference is organized with support of the Hanns Seidel Stiftung and European Commission Representations in the Republic of Croatia, for which we are very grateful.
