In 2019, the host for the upcoming Legal Research Network Conference will be the Law Faculty of the University ELTE Budapest. The event is part of the annual activities of the Legal Research Network (LRN), a cooperation between the Law Faculties of eight European universities: Bristol, Budapest, Ghent, Göttingen, Groningen, Lille, Turku, and Uppsala.
The conference theme will be ‘Autonomy’. Autonomy is a basic principle of modern society, as well as of each and every legal system. Across all fields of law, the concept of autonomy has its special implications. Law protects the autonomy of individuals and associations by defending the boundaries of their own self-rule. Autonomy has not only to be assured and protected, but its content has to be defined and its limits set. Autonomy cannot be absolute and should not lead to the detriment of other values. Thus, complex questions arise which may be addressed from different angles and on different levels.
