It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite you to a special week of sports law, policy & diplomacy, called 5th Rijeka EU Sports Law, Policy & Diplomacy Days (14-20 June 2021, to be held virtually in Rijeka, Croatia). The event includes two high-level events: the 15th Sport & EU Conference and EU Sports Law, Policy & Diplomacy Rijeka Summer School.
15th Sport & EU Conference
The conference is organised by the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Law and its Sports Law, Sports Policies and Sports Diplomacy Centre (Croatia), the Association for Sport & EU, and the International Sports Law Journal. The conference will see the participation of around 100 paper and panel paper givers and we expect more than 300 participants.
Given the current circumstances, the conference has to be organized online (via Cisco Webex), but it will at least allow us to get together, discuss the latest research, and support one another in these difficult times. The conference will run from 14 to 17 June in shorter sessions, to avoid online and screen fatigue. One of the few advantages of not being able to get together in person is that we were able to reduce the registration fee. Registration for this year’s conference is just €15, and it is free for students and Ph.D. students.
You can find all the information about the conference on our website as well: https://www.sportandeu.com/2021-onlineconference. To attend the conference, please register via the following registration form: https://forms.gle/nqJ2xiyGpoe8xLHe8.

The special guests and key-note speakers at our conference will be Mrs. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović (International Olympic Committee Member and former President of the Republic of Croatia), Mr. Julien Zylberstein (Chief of Governance & Stakeholder Affairs and Senior adviser of the President at UEFA); Prof. Marko Ilešič, Ph.D. (Judge at the CJEU); Prof. Vesna Tomljenović, Ph.D. (Judge at the General Court, CJEU); Prof. Michele Colucci, Ph.D. (FIFA DRC Member and Wolter Kluwer Encyclopaedia on Sports Law Editor) and Prof. Siniša Petrović, Ph.D. (the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Law and CAS Arbitrator). The conference is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and Sport of the Republic of Croatia.
