About the Conference

Welcome to the 14th Polish-Spanish Conference on the European Legal Tradition! This annual gathering of legal scholars is organized alternately by SWPS University and a distinguished Spanish university.

This year's conference, which will take place on May 10 in Warsaw, Poland, will focus on three important topics: Democracy, Peace and Human Rights.

Since ancient Greece and Rome, the development of political systems has been associated with the need for active public participation in shaping the system of authority. The form of a socially acceptable political system remains a subject of constant debate. History offers insights into the evolution of democratic structures and the need to adapt them to changing societal, economic, and political contexts. The Roman Republic, for example, which functioned for almost five centuries, eventually collapsed because it was unable to adapt to changing circumstances. In light of modern challenges, especially those related to technology and the emergence of the information society, it is essential to reflect on past experiences in order to inform scientific thought.

The second theme of our conference is peace, which is now recognized as a fundamental human right. However, the concept of peace goes beyond the mere absence of armed conflict. It is the basis of individual and societal security and a widely accepted social order based on just law at both national and international levels. Discussions about peace have been going on since Roman times and continue to this day.

Finally, the third theme of our conference is humanity. The democratic system is constantly being improved and adapted to current social, political, and economic needs in order to ensure peace for humanity. The concept of human rights has its roots in Greek philosophy, Christianity, and Roman law, even though it only emerged in the late 18th century. Roman law contained numerous solutions that are almost identical to today's concept of human rights, such as Florentinus' definition of freedom.

We cordially invite you to actively participate in the conference. Speakers have the option to participate remotely or on-site, after registering via the registration form below. We invite attendees to join us in person at SWPS University in Warsaw (registration will open soon).
