Jean Monnet Seminar: CompaRe meets EUTAXGOV

Wednesday 15 June 2022
Kamerlingh Onnes Building
Steenschuur 25
2311 ES Leiden
B.026 and online

On Wednesday 15 June, the Faculty will host a seminar about two ongoing Jean Monnet projects: the Chair on EU Tax Governance, led by Irma Mosquera Valderrama, and the Centre of Excellence on Comparative Regional Integration, by Armin Cuyvers. The seminar is open to all teachers and researchers at the university.

The Leiden Law School currently hosts two Jean Monnet Actions:

The Jean Monnet Chair on EU Tax Governance (EUTAXGOV) addresses the EU Standard of Tax Good Governance. Its objectives are to enhance knowledge and understanding of the use of this Standard by students, and to raise awareness and create a dialogue between academia, civil society, governments, and policy makers at both EU and country level. The Chair Holder is Professor Irma Mosquera Valderrama.

The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on Comparative Regional Integration (CompaRe) unites expertise on integration with regional expertise on Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin-America into a centre on comparative regional integration. This collaboration enables systematic, comparative and multidisciplinary research and teaching. The Centre is lead by Professor Armin Cuyvers.

This seminar will present both projects, address the research and teaching activities, and discuss how these activities can establish and strengthen cooperation with other faculties at Leiden University. It aims to motivate colleagues within Leiden Law School to successfully acquire similar projects or to take part in the two running Jean Monnet Actions. It will provide knowledge, e.g. on how (and which) research and teaching activities can be developed and interlinked within one project, and how multidisciplinary collaborations can be established. It will also share best practices on how to prepare a successful grant application for Jean Monnet. The seminar will include a brief introduction on the specific funding scheme. 

This seminar is open to all staff from Leiden University participating in teaching and research activities.
