Review of symposium in pictures: "Perspectives on Russian law as it is stands today’ Symposium co-organised by the IRDEIC-CEEC and IDP 25 may 2018




Symposium topic:

To celebrate the establishment of the double degree, a symposium entitled ‘Perspectives on Russian law as it stands today’ was organised by the course coordinator of the degree programme, Estelle Fohrer-Dedeurwaerder (IRDEIC lecturer) and a Russian PhD candidate enrolled at Toulouse 1 Capitole University (IDP), Irina Nainodina.

This event took place in partnership with the Comparative Legislation Society (SLC), which was founded in 1869 

Since the dissolution of the USSR in December 1991, its successor, the Russian Federation, had implemented a liberal system of political pluralism, private property and free markets. The switch from a socialist system to a liberal one had provoked many transformations in all branches of the law and continues to do so today.


The purpose of this symposium was to show that, beyond the political difficulties between France (and Europe) and Russia, Russian law had caught up on European advances (European Union and the European Convention of Human Rights) to build its own tradition and infrastructure.
The symposium sought to present the originality of Russian law compared to European laws and reflect on the existing dialogue between Russian and European laws.

The event was organised into 4 round table discussions and 2 speeches in Russian which were simultaneously interpreted:


 Speach by Professor Pavel Birukov
Speach by Professor Oksana Petyukova
