2 de outubro, às 9:00, na Universidade de Bergen
The Research Group for EU/EEA Competition and Market Law and Bergen Center for Competition Law and Economics (BECCLE) are pleased to invite you to a seminar with Ass. Prof. Nuno Cunha Rodriguez, Jean Monnet Chair in European Integration at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, on the Extraterritorial Effects of EU Economic Law – EU Law Beyond the Union, at 2nd of Oktober, from 09:00 to 10:00, in Auditorium 4, Law Building 1, University of Bergen.
The application of EU Economic Law considers an appropriate link with the territory of the Union in respect to the basic principle of territoriality enshrined in public international law. However, in some cases, public international law allows States to exercise their jurisdiction extraterritorially. Including enforcing decisions of its institutions elsewhere, and which has caused stir in Norway for example in the case of ACER in energy matters, but also other areas such as financing and banking markets.
Over the years, EU Economic law has been expanding its territorial application, by applying exceptions to the principle of territoriality and adding new elements of connection.
This phenomenon – that we designate the “territorial expansion of EU Economic law” – can be noticed in different branches of law, like competition law – which was reinforced after the Intel case (case C-413/14 P) -, Environmental Law, Food and Consumer Law, Data Protection and International Trade Law.
Although it’s clear that, according to the inherent territorial scope of TFEU rules, the EC is not competent to assess an undertaking established outside the EU, it’s also clear that the final decisions of the EC or the ECJ can produce jurisdictional effects in third countries.
All these topics will be analyzed at the conference.
This BECCLE Seminar will take place in Auditorium 4 at the Law Faculty of the University of Bergen, located at the right-hand side when you enter the main entrance of the Faculty, from 09:00 to 10:00.
