Project Description

VII CONPEDI International Meeting – Brazilian National Council for Research and Post-Graduation in Law | September 7th and 8th

The Center for Studies in Law of the European Union (CEDU) was invited to host, on 7 and 8 September 2017, the VII International Meeting of CONPEDI – National (Brazilian) Council for Research and Postgraduate Studies in Law. It is a non-profit organization that represents 120 Masters and PhD Programs in Law in Brazil, with about 5 thousand associated researchers. CONPEDI was created by the aforementioned Brazilian Postgraduate Programs to represent the Law area at CAPES (Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel), the Brazilian agency for research and higher education.

Since its creation in the late 1980s, CONPEDI has held annual congresses in Brazil that offer visibility to scientific production in the area of ​​Law – and from 2014 onwards, it began to internationalize its activities, having held meetings in several countries of the American continent and European. For the first time this Congress will be held in Portugal and CEDU was the chosen partner for this purpose.

Taking into account the lines of research of CEDU, the 7th CONPEDI International Meeting will focus on updating the theory of interconstitutionality, which is why the opening intervention will be given by Professor José Joaquim Gomes Canotilho.
