Skopje, North Macedonia
Organization: Iustinianus Primus Law Faculty, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje
The Iustinianus Primus Law Faculty, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University- Skopje, is announcing a Call for Papers for its Annual International Conference. The 2019 conference topic is “Transitions of Legal Systems: 30 Years after the fall of the Berlin Wall”.Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin wall, Europe has significantly changed. The ideas of protection of human rights, democracy and legal security are the cornerstones of any modern legal system in Central and Eastern European countries. The fall of the wall also changed the face of the European Communities and initiated new processes of integration and transition. While some countries in Europe represent the best practice of transitioning from one into another legal, political and economic reality, others are still struggling with their past and have not yet managed to accommodate to the new legal standards, economic system and political democracy.
Topics to be covered include, amongst others
Access to Justice in Democratic Societies
