Legal Clinics World Café 2023

«Accès inégal au marché du travail pour les groupes vulnérables»

As part of the EUQUALIS Center of Excellence focusing on inequalities within the European Union, the Institute d’études européennes will organize half-day World Café on the functioning of legal clinics (Equality Law Clinic, Refugee Law Clinic, and EU Criminal Law Clinic). The Legal Clinics are valuable tools ofprofessionalisation of University courses, as well as a valuable contribution to the fight against certain inequalities (as discrimination based on gender, assistance to refugees and vulnerable individuals, or support to lawyers involved in transnational criminal cases).

The first discussion will take place on Tuesday, April 25th at the IEE (Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, 39, 1050 Brussels) with the goal of improving the functioning of Legal Clinics and enabling the creation of new clinics. The event will include three roundtable discussions on the strengths and challenges of Legal clinics.

Participation in the World Café is by invitation only

The Jean Monnet Centre  of Excellence EUqualis

Starting April 2022, and for three years, the Institut d’études européennes of the Université libre de Bruxelles hosts the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence EUqualis, focused on the overarching topic of (in)equality and the European Union. 

Directly involving a dozen academics and researchers affiliated with the Institute, EUqualis aims to investigate how the EU deals with the problem of inequality among individuals, territories and states. Conceived using a bottom-up, interdisciplinary approach, EUqualis builds on the success of the previous IEE Centre of Excellence dedicated to ‘European Solidarity’ (2016-2019).
