The EAHL Interest Group on Supranational Biolaw

The EAHL Interest Group on Supranational Biolaw is co-chaired by Aurélie Mahalatchimy (UMR 7318 DICE CERIC, CNRS, Aix Marseille University, Toulon University, Pau & Pays de l’Adour University, France) and Mark Flear (Queen’s University Belfast, UK). The group has been created in 2020.

The EAHL Interest Group on Supranational Biolaw has been created in 2020. It aims to promote European health law, especially in its European-level dimension. ‘Supranational biolaw’ is understood as comprising the law of the European Union, the Council of Europe and the European Patent Organisation, regarding the law and the various legal issues arising from technological advances related to medicine and biotechnology.

While Supranational Biolaw in all its dimensions is often not understood as valuable in and of itself, it underpins or is inflected within national law, and is now so developed that it can no longer be ignored.

Through research, training and networking activities, the types of activities that correspond to the activities of EAHL, the EAHL Interest Group on Supranational Biolaw will help to effectively mobilise its Members to address demands from several groups within society, including legislators and regulators, scientists (researchers and clinicians), and patients regarding Supranational Biolaw. The Interest Group will also help to strengthen the position of academics within national level systems and political contexts that threaten their autonomy and role as facilitators of freedom of discussion.
