In December 2017 the latest meeting of the IOS EU network (Utrecht University Scholars working on Europe) took place. Kees Terlouw (Geosciences - Human Geography and Planning) discussed his research under the title “Spatial identity discourses in and on Europe: less is more?” which included the territorial dimension of public opinion on European integration. Salvo Nicolosi (Law - International and European Law) presented his ongoing research on EU asylum law, including the Dublin Regulation that has become highly controversial since the start of the refugee crisis. His research aims at building a system of asylum law that is founded on solidarity, a key concept in EU law. Lastly, Liesbeth van de Grift (Humanities – International History) discussed her new research on the role of consumer organizations in getting consumer protection high on the agenda of what is now the EU in the 1970s. A rich and lively discussion followed which was concluded by informal drinks.
