2011 - 17 March - Lecture by Prof. dr. Allan Rosas, Judge at the European Court of Justice

Prof. Dr. Allan Rosas, Judge at the Court of Justice of the EU, delivered the first-ever Annual CLEER Lecture on 17 March 2011 at the premises of the T.M.C. Asser Institute in The Hague. Tackling the questions whether the EU constitutions a human rights organization, Rosas discussed the important developments that have taken place since the early days of the European integration process, when the focus was on economic integration and fundamental rights received scarce, if any, attention. He then paid attention to the role of human rights in EU external relations, the accession procedure to the European Convention on Human Rights, as well as the applicability of international humanitarian role to CSDP operations. Prof. Dr. Martin Kuijer, senior legal counsel at the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice, acted as respondent. The event was organized in cooperation with the Embassy of Finland to The Netherlands.
