During this visit, a symposium on Climate, environment and land use was held at the Sami Parliament on 26 May, with the President of the Parliament in attendance, followed the next day by a seminar on Mapping the multilevel protection of fundamental rights in European administrative courts.
The latter gave the administrative courts present an opportunity to discuss the relationship between national standards and European law.
More specifically, the delicate question of the consequences to be drawn from a possible contradiction between the Constitution and European law, in particular the Charter of Fundamental Rights, was debated.
In this respect, the reading grid proposed by the Conseil d’Etat in its Arcelor Assembly decision (CE Ass., 8 February 2007) was cited as an example.
Finally, on 28 May, the Association, currently chaired by the Supreme Administrative Court of Finland, held its Annual General Meeting.  The Greek Council of State will hold the next presidency from 2025 to 2027.
