The Adelaide Law School and the EU Centre for Global Affairs at the University of Adelaide invite you to a Public Seminar on 9 May 2017 to celebrate Europe Day and mark the 60th Anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the treaty that created the European Economic Community (EEC).

Other topics for discussion include the historic and legal background to establishment of the EEC; the future of European identity and EU citizenship; the way in which politics at the nation-state level is affecting the EU; the European sovereign debt crisis; and the European migration crisis.
Guests will be entertained by Hong Kong based theatre group, The Shadow Players, who will present a preview of Moliere’s play, The Learned Ladies. The EU Centre will offer as a lucky door prize two tickets to the play to be performed in its entirety on Saturday 13 May at Nexus Arts, North Terrace.
