XXIX FIDE Congress to be held in person on 3-6 November
After two forced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the XXIX FIDE Congress will be held in person in The Hague on 3-6 November. Originally scheduled for May 2020, the conference will welcome 450 specialists in EU law hosted by the Netherlands Association for European Law (NVER).
FIDE, the biannual congress of the International Federation of European Law, is considered to be among the most significant and reputed conferences on EU law. It typically involves panel discussions on specific, relevant topics in various areas of EU law, as well as the publication of reports on the same issues. Participants include academics, practitioners, members of EU courts, and other EU institutions.
In its current edition, the FIDE Congress will be dealing with the following topics:
- (i) ‘National Courts and the Enforcement of EU Law – the pivotal role of national courts in the EU legal order’;
- (ii) ‘The new EU Data Protection Regime – setting global standards for the right to personal data protection’;
- (iii) ‘EU competition law and the digital economy – protecting free and fair competition in an age of technological (r)evolution’.
More information is available at the FIDE 2021 website.
EU Law Live hosted the General Rapporteurs of each topic in its Podcast Series, as well as on the Young FIDE initiative.
