We are happy to announce that in its last Departmental Meeting, the Law Department approved of our initiative. In its call for applications for the new Chair in Constitutional and/or Public Law, the department will thus particularly welcome candidates interested in theoretical dimensions of gender, sexuality, and race. Big thank you to everyone who signed! […]
“Having at least one faculty member with expertise in gender, race and sexuality law is not merely a luxury anymore – it is a necessity. … Since the EUI aims at being at the forefront of academic discourse in Europe, it needs to pay attention to these developments in order to preserve its distinguished reputation and to ensure the intellectual competitiveness of its graduates. We believe that someone with a clear expertise on race and gender will attract a wider range of forward-looking applicants to the PhD programme of the EUI Law Department.”
