Short description:
Performs theoretical and applied scientific research in the field of Greek, European and Comparative Public Law and in relative branches of the legal science. Enhancing public awareness and promoting scientific debate over institutional developments in the European Union and the member states are within the Centres priorities. The recent developments spreading throughout Europe, including the areas of Central and South-eastern Europe and the New Independent States, constitute the most challenging motive for the establishment of the Centre for European Constitutional Law. It is within the Centres intentions to provide technical know-how and any possible scientific support to the institutional reform of the new legal order now being established in these countries. For the accomplishment of the above-mentioned goals, the Centre implements a wide range of activities such as carrying out scientific research programmes and projects, consultation and evaluation, conferences and meetings. CECL also coordinates the publication of series of legal books, in association with A. N. Sakkoulas Legal Publishers. Apart from its publishing activity, CECL also houses a law library within its establishment, has access to online information networks and computer based documentation systems.
