Professor Mitsilegas contributes to the special issue of the German Law Journal.
Valsamis Mitsilegas, Professor of European Criminal Law and Global Security at Queen Mary University of London, is one of the twenty scholars invited by the German Law Journal to address the Challenges facing the European Union in the new decade.
His contribution focuses on Trust, and highlights key key challenges in the EU in relation to four distinct, but inter-related, aspects of trust: Transnational or mutual trust within the EU; trust between the Union and its Member States; citizens' trust; and the external dimension of trust, in particular.
The German Law Journal is a pioneering open-access forum for the publication of scholarship and commentary on comparative, European, and international law. It has been online and freely-available since 1999. Founded as a transatlantic newsletter on developments in German law, the Journal has secured a place among the world's leading law reviews disseminating scholarship across borders. The Journal combines high-quality theoretical research with reports on current developments and thematic special issues. Pursuing this agenda, the Journal has gained a reputation for innovative publishing - linking cutting-edge, border-crossing scholarship with open access and speed to publication.
