Conference "EU Law in the Member States. Air Passenger Rights, 10 Years on"


Friday 26.09.14 to Saturday 27.09.14


Verversdijk, Bruges campus
Verversdijk 16
8000 Brugge

Regulation 261/2004 on Air Passengers’ Rights has been amongst the most high‐profile pieces of EU secondary legislation of the past years. It has led to equally challenging decisions across the Member States. The economic stakes are significant for passengers and operators alike, and with the recent publication of the Commission’s reform proposals controversies appear far from settled.

This high-level international conference is organized jointly by the Department of European Legal Studies of the College of Europe and the Oxford University Institute of European and Comparative Law. It will bring together generalist EU lawyers and experts in the relevant field, combining perspectives from a wide range of different member states in order to compare and analyze the effect of EU law on domestic legal systems and practice.

Registration fee is € 100 (lunch included on Saturday 27 September 2014). The fee is waived for students and for PhD researchers.
