On 18-19 June 2015, the AEPDIRI —in collaboration with the Universities of Vigo, Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña and under the sponsorship of an Erasmus+ Project— organized a Colloquium on “The extraterritorial application of EU Law”. A leaflet of the Colloquium may be found here and more information about its purposes here.

Among the questions addressed in the Agora, four may be underlined: As suggested by the new Law’s explanatory memorandum, did international law require a modification of the existing model so far? Was a convenient reform or, to the contrary, was an inevitable reform due to non-legal constraints? Does the reform comply with Spain’s international obligations? From an expediency viewpoint, what assessment could be made? More than 20 contributions were submitted discussing all these questions, along with several keynotes.

The Spanish Yearbook of International Law, as one of the leading publications of AEPDIRI, is pleased to publish some of these most interesting contributions in its volume 19 (2015). They can be downloaded as a complete set here or by individual contribution below.
