Notice of retraction
At the end of February 2020, Amsterdam Law Forum was made aware of a potential author misconduct concerning suspected plagiarism of one of the articles published in our Spring Issue of 2019. This matter was raised with regard to the following article: Dimitris Liakopoulos, ‘Interpretations Responsibility of the European Union in the Implementation of the Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP)’. Amsterdam Law Forum immediately launched an inquiry and indeed found that the abovementioned article had to a large extent been intentionally copied from a select number of sources. The author was confronted with the results of this inquiry, however, he denied any plagiarism. Despite the denial of the author, due to the conclusive evidence of misconduct, the ALF board has decided that this article will be retracted for reasons of plagiarism.
