CELIS Book Launch 2021 - Video - With Cecilia Malmström and Sven Simon
On 1 July 2021, the CELIS Institute and the YSEC Yearbook of Socio-Economic Constitutions celebrated the official launch of "A Common European Law on Investment Screening (CELIS)" (published by Springer Nature Group) featuring a high-level panel debate with former European Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström and Sven Simon, MEP, as well as the series editors Steffen Hindelang and Andreas Moberg, moderated by Jens Hillebrand Pohl. Many thanks to everyone who tuned in and contributed to the success of the event!
The comprehensive 850-page study presents the first and only, interdisciplinarily grounded appraisal of the emerging “Common European Law on Investment Screening” (or CELIS for short). It provides a foundation for a European administrative law framework for investment screening by setting out viable solutions and evaluating their pros and cons. As the political will in Europe to more actively control foreign investment flows continues to gain pace, the current regulatory initiatives raise several fundamental, constitutional and regulatory issues, which have not been addressed in any depth so far. The study takes stock of the existing fragmented regulatory approaches and combines contributions from leading international academics, practitioners, and policy makers. Due to the study's comprehensive approach, it is expected to influence the broader debate on the future shape of the EU’s foreign investment control regime.
