This summer school course will focus on the recent issues and challenges the EU's legal system encounters. As the world is experiencing change with an intensity that seems unprecedented, also the EU is increasingly confronted with various problems. For example, the protection of the rule of law and fundamental rights, digitalization of the internal market and EU competition law response to the digitalization, internal and external (im)migration, Brexit and the rule of law. How far will the EU be able to turn these challenges into opportunities?
The European Union (EU) is a union of 28 member states and traces its roots back to 1950s. It has evolved considerably from a mere economic cooperation in a limited number of sectors of economy to a ‘state-like’ polity. This development has boosted numerous legal and political changes in the past 60 years. As the world is experiencing change with an intensity that seems unprecedented, also the EU is increasingly confronted with various issues. In this summer school course the focus will be on the recent challenges the EU's legal system is confronted with such as: protection of the rule of law and fundamental rights, digitalization of the internal market, response of EU competition law to Big Technologies, external and internal (im)migration or Brexit.
