About the Course
The importance of International Law (IL) and European Union law (EUL) has increased tremendously over the past decades.
International Law traditionally dealt with the structure and conduct of states only, but it has evolved and addresses other actors such as individuals, international organizations and multinational corporations. Likewise, the European Union and subsequently her law has gone through immense development in the course of the last decades.
The European Union – being a unique international organization – has a complex system of law which not only affects the legal systems of her member states but it can also directly affect the rights and obligations of individuals. What is more, as ruled by the European Court of Justice, EU law takes supreme position over state laws and even state constitutions.
This course will provide an indispensable guide to this burgeoning field of law through engaging in following topics such as Multilevel governance of European Union, Law-Making in the European Union multilevel system, evolving accountability setting in European Union, Data Protection and Rights and law related to International Treaties of European Union.
The objective of the Course
The primary objectives of the course are as below:
- To expose participants about the basic concepts on International Law and European Union Law.
- To enable participants to understand the multi-level governance setting and enforcement mechanism of the European Union.
- To identify and critically engage in the issues related to international treaties of the European Union, Lisbon and Maastricht Treaties.
- To enable participants to understand and compare issues in different jurisdictions, primarily the European Union and Germany.
