 Inaugural CLEER Fellow lecture 

‘Issues Concerning International Agreements of EU Member States not binding the Union: the Case of the UN Charter’
by Luca Pantaleo (University of Macerata and University of Rome LUISS Guido Carli, CLEER Fellow)
13 March 2012, 12.30 - 14.00 hrs, T.M.C. Asser Instituut, The Hague.

The CLEER Fellow lecture will explore the legal relationship between the European Union and the UN Charter, an international agreement whose importance is vital for the international community. The UN Charter, while not binding the EU from a strictly formal viewpoint, is still binding upon EU Member States. In this respect, the Kadi case has shown the possible effects of a clash between the obligations of Member States under the UN Charter and the EU legal order, raising the need for further analysis of the problem. Luca Pantaleo’s findings will add to the flourishing debate on the legal implications of international agreements concluded by EU Members States for the European Union.

Luca Pantaleo is a PhD candidate at the University of Macerata and Assistant Lecturer to the chair of International Law held by Professor Enzo Cannizzaro at the University of Rome “LUISS Guido Carli”. He worked as Visiting Researcher from April to June 2011 in the PUC/SP Pontificia Univesidade Catolica de São Paulo, Brazil. Between January and April 2012 Luca has been a CLEER Fellow at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut.
