Events

Prof Florian Trauner frequently organises events in the context of the EXPAND Jean Monnet Chair. Below is an overview of both upcoming and past events. Some have a direct link to the Chair's topic of EU Justice and Home Affairs, others are more indirectly linked because of their substantial educational component, or because they provide valuable output (e.g. on topics such as radicalisation or migration and minorities) that reinforces the activities of the EXACT Chair.
