Students will be able
-to describe European and international legal-economic interdependencies
The module consists of two lectures which deal with changes in policies and institutions of international economic law. One lecture focuses on economic law and institutions as shaped by international law, while the other class is dedicated to EU foreign trade law. A basic knowledge of the institutions of international and EU economic law (WTO, IMF, World Bank, European Commission) is a prerequisite for attending this module. The focus lies in helping students understand the processes of internationalization and Europeanization that inform the current interactions between the different actors on the international plane (companies, states and parastatals). In this module, public and private economic law will be presented as a single unit.
The international law part of the module focuses on the rationale and regulation of the major free trade agreements, including dispute settlement. Other topics to be addressed include the conflict of laws and the UN Convention (CISG). The EU law focuses on competition and foreign trade law, including procurement and taxation law.
