          Editorial: The First WISHIRIJC


                               Francis Snyder





This Special Issue of the European Law Journal is devoted to research by young schol-
ars in European law. It presents a selection of the revised (and where necessary, trans-
lated) versions of papers which were originally presented at the First International
Workshop  for Young  Scholars in European legal studies (WISH; in French, Rencontre
Internationale des Jeunes Chercheurs (RIJC)). The first WISH/RIJC focused on 'Euro-
pean  Legal Studies in the 21st Century' / 'Etudes juridiques europ6ennes au 216me
si&le'. It was organised by the European Law Journal, together with the Centre d'E-
tudes et de Recherches Internationales et Communautaires  (CERIC-CNRS-UMR
6108) of the Facult6 de Droit et de Science Politique of the Universit6 d'Aix-Marseille
III. It was held at the Faculty of  Law  and Political Science, University of Aix-
Marseille III, in Aix-en-Provence, France, on 20-21 September 2002.
  The  Workshop,  one of the first of its kind in Europe, sought to bring together the
most promising  young scholars in the field of European Union law from universities
of the EU Member   States, countries that are currently candidates for EU membership,
and other countries such as China or the United States. Its objective was to identify
and discuss themes that are likely to be the most significant topics of research in the
field of European Union law in the first half of the twenty-first century. The Workshop
was oriented primarily toward research currently being carried out by advanced doc-
toral students. It was designed to offer the participants an opportunity to present their
best research work in a professional academic setting, to an audience of other young
scholars and more senior scholars. It also was intended to provide a means by which
their work could be published either in the form of an article or in an edited book des-
tined for an international readership. Following the Workshop, the authors revised their
papers on the basis of detailed written comments, oral comments by assigned discus-
sants, and the comments made  in open discussion. A limited number of revised papers
were selected for publication in this Special Issue of the EL.1 Articles written origi-
nally in French were translated into English for this purpose.
  The  articles selected for publication in this issue, though ranging widely in specific
topics, deal with two broad areas of concern. The first area is governance, including
domestic social and economic regulation, issues of powers and competence, and rela-
tions of the EU with other countries. The second area is consumer protection, broadly



The  complete set of revised papers from the first WISH/RIJC is being published in two volumes: Comment
  protiger les intrits du citoyen dans l'Union europdenne d'aujourd'hui / Protecting the Interests of the Citizen
  in Today's European Union (Bruylant, 2003) and The European Union and Governance / Governance et
  l'Union europdenne (Bruylant, 2003).
