International Conference 19-20 October 2017 - Campus of Ravenna

The Colonial Law in a Comparative Perspective and the Heritage of Colonialism:

Crisis and Future of the European Identity

Le droit colonial dans une perspective comparée

et l’heritage colonial:

crise et futur de l’identité européenne


International Conference

19-20 October 2017, Ravenna

Aula Gershevitch, via G. Pasolini 23

The Conference aims at the analysis of the Euro- Mediterranean policies and the assessment of the causes of their current crisis. In particular the enormous flows of migrants represent an extraordinary challenge for the EU and future of Mediterranean countries.

In this frame it will be necessary to acknowledge the colonial legacy and the continuity of colonialism with the Euro-Mediterranean relationships since the establishment of the EEC in 1957.

These topics will be considered according to two approaches: a) the European historical and political debate about the colonial law and the colonial heritage and b) the analysis of the perspectives of the Euro-Mediterranean relations after the failure of the «Arab springs» with the only exception of Tunisia.
