Speaker information

Professor Dr. Armin von Bogdan, Director, Max-Planck Institut, Professor Armin von Bogdandy is Director at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, Heidelberg and Professor of Public Law at the Goethe-University, Frankfurt/Main. He is President of the OECD Nuclear Energy Tribunal and a member of the German Science Council (Wissenschaftsrat). In June 2008, Professor Bogdandy received the Berlin-Brandenburgian Academy of the Sciences Prize for outstanding scientific achievements in the field of foundations of law and economics, sponsored by the Commerz-bank foundation. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (2008-2013). He was invited to be the Inaugural Fellow at the Straus Institute for Advanced Study of Law and Justice, New York University during the 2009-2010 academic year and was recently appointed a Senior Emile Noel Fellow by the Global Law School of the New York University (2010-2015), following two separate stints as an NYU Global Law Professor.

The continuing European integration poses fundamental and probing questions to legal studies within the Member States. These issues are explicated in a first step, which shows how the political project of a European scientific area, the dynamic of the European legal area, and the leading US law schools impact these. A second step sketches strategies for dealing with these challenges, namely through the intensification of comparative legal studies, the Europeanization of legal method, and the Europeanization and diversification of disciplinary identities.
