New website - Forms of Life and Legal Integration in Europe (FOLIE)

We are pleased to announce that the Chair of Excellence Forms of Life and Legal Integration in Europe (FOLIE), directed by Loïc Azoulai, has now a website: You will find on it information about the research project, its team members and its activities. 
FOLIE aims at providing a richer understanding and a deeper critique of the European Union's project, by exploring the ways in which forms of social life are fashioned by European law. Its main objective is to tackle the role of EU law in the construction of complex sets of social relations pertaining to the family, the market, the nation and other areas of social life.
More information about the group's upcoming activities will be available soon on the website.
