Presentation of the Award

This prize is intended to distinguish the most accomplished studies or research, in order to promote knowledge of judicial expertise in Europe by studying its functioning, the governing principles, the applicable case law and the judicial framework in which it is used, in all countries of the European Union and beyond.

Scientific contributions of any kind (thesis, monograph, article, etc.), written in English or French, or in any other language that the Committee may admit for a given year (or, where applicable, translated into one of these languages), and published in the two preceding years, are eligible.

They will be evaluated by the EEEI Scientific Committee until end December 2022, for an award ceremony in early 2023. The author will be invited to make a keynote presentation (+/-20 min) of her/his work.

 Who is the EEEI award for?

The award is of an honorific character. In principle, it is not (yet) linked to the allocation of a sum of money. However, if the work is intended for publication, the prize may include a financial contribution to facilitate publication.

The EEEI reserves the right not to award the prize if the contributions collected do not allow an author to be distinguished.

Are you eligible?

The contributions which were written in French or English and were published, exceptionally between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2021, are eligible.
