Dr. Psychogiopoulou and Prof. Schoenmaekers will join us for the second DANCING Academic Conversation on Thursday, 7 December 2023 at 1-2pm (Dublin/GMT) to discuss their forthcoming co-edited volume entitled ‘European Union Economic Law and Culture: Towards a European Culturally Corrected Market Economy’ (Edward Elgar, forthcoming).
The volume addresses questions which have long been raised about the place culture holds in the European Union (EU) edifice. Concern has been voiced in particular about the extent to which the Union’s economic policies can accommodate and embrace national (and regional) cultural preferences and whether (or not) there remains room for national (and regional) cultural policy-making in light of the Union’s preeminent economic focus. This book aims to provide fresh insight into the ways in which culture interconnects with and is treated by EU economic law and policy. The book also looks afresh at questions pertaining to the nature, scope and extent of the competence of the EU and its Member States in the field of culture. In doing so, the books seeks to advance our understanding of the Union as a cultural market economy and to determine whether there is a need (and leeway) to adopt measures and strategies aimed at ‘cultural correction’.
We warmly invite anyone interested in the topic to attend the event and to join us for an engaging and thought-provoking DANCING Academic Conversation as well as for a discussion of the issues raised in a friendly and collaborative environment on Thursday, 7 December 2023 at 1-2pm.
