Lunchseminarium Allan Rosas

Lunch seminar on Tuesday 12 November 2019 at 11.30-12.30 in hotel Arkipelag's restaurant.

Does the EU suffer from a democratic deficit?

Speaker: Allan Rosas

The so-called democratic deficit of the EU has long been a subject of debate and brought with it various types of change within the Union. How should this discussion and criticism be understood? How has it influenced European co-operation?

Allan Rosas, with his long experience of legal issues in Finland and the EU, discusses the criticism of the democratic deficit and the EU's willingness and ability to meet it.

Allan Rosas is a retiring judge at the European Court of Justice (2002-2019), and a former adviser and Deputy Director-General of the Legal Service of the European Commission (1995-2001). Prior to these European assignments, he was the Armfelt Professor of Constitutional and International Law, among other things. The European Commission recently appointed Allan Rosas as one of the three members of the Independent Ethical Committee.

The seminar is held in Swedish. Lunch can be bought in the restaurant and taken to the seminar held in the southern part of the restaurant. The seminar will start at 11.30 and will last an hour.
