Stakeholder Panel: ‘The Brussels Effect: How the European Union Rules the World’


In her 2020 bestseller, ‘The Brussels Effect: How the European Union Rules the World’, Professor Bradford examines the role of EU measures in shaping numerous policy fields such as data privacy, consumer health and safety, environmental protection, antitrust, and online hate speech. This event, organised jointly by the Globalisation and Law Network, Maastricht University (GLAW-Net), and the University of York Faculty of Law, will provide an opportunity for academics, national and EU policymakers, and civil society members, to engage with Anu Bradford (Columbia).

Following a keynote by Professor Bradford, there will take place two panel discussions between leading scholars and stakeholders on questions surrounding the role and influence of the EU on the global stage, the nature of the ‘Brussels effect’, and potential responsibilities arising from the EU’s capacity to rule the world. The event will close with a drinks reception.

Note that this event will take place in Brussels and online.
