The EU in Public International Law: Selected Case-studies
Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2019 PROJECT  FINISHED 

“The EU in Public International Law: Selected Case-studies” is a Module concentrating primarily on delivering lectures on the role and relevance of the EU in specific areas of great interest to the everyday life of the European citizen. The selected case-studies will provide students with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the workings of specific international organizations and fora and understand how different sets of rules can affect the creation, adoption and implementation of decisions and policies at the European and national level. The two co-instructors, along with a host of invited guest lecturers, possess extensive academic and professional experience in the fields explored, thus guaranteeing an in-depth and up-to-date analysis of each case-study. Besides lectures, EUinPIL offers two more major contributions. First, a dedicated Handbook, closely following the structure of the lectures, will be the sum of 3 years of teaching and constant refinement of the relevant research through the millstones of daily interaction with students. Second, a Conference summarizing addressing the research areas of the course and culminating in the presentation of the Handbook, as an overarching body of work rounding up the totality of the research, input and experiences of the previous 3 years.EUinPIL emphasizes the need for the involvement of younger academics in the teaching of EU-related subjects and is specifically tailored towards allowing them to obtain teaching experience, deepen their research and present it before specialized audiences. Through its tangible contributions and its impact on the professional development of younger academics, EUinPIL ensures the creation of added academic value and the expansion of the EU pool of knowledge, by delving into previously incompletely-charted waters.
