Economic Governance in Europe: Comparative Paradoxes and Constitutional Challenges

Description

Federico Fabbrini (Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen) delivered a talk on his book manuscript 'Economic Governance in Europe: Comparative Paradoxes and Constitutional Challenges.' The Euro-crisis and the legal and institutional responses to it have had important constitutional implications on the architecture of the European Union (EU). The purpose of the talk ? which is based on the ongoing book project ? is to offer a broad picture of how relations of power in the EU have changed, considering three different dimension: 1) the vertical relations of power between the member states and the EU institutions: 2) the relations of power between the political branches and the courts; and 3) the horizontal relations of power between the EU member states themselves.

Elswick Works Amateur Rowing Club

Description

View of the Elswick Works Amateur Rowing Club, Newcastle upon Tyne, c1900 (TWAM ref. 1027/418). Lord Armstrong appears to be in this photograph, second from the left at the top of the stairs. ?Workshop of the World? is a phrase often used to describe Britain?s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It?s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.
