The course aims to provide the students with some fundamental knowledge of law at supranational level, its competing institutions, sources, efficacy, conflicts of competence. Accordingly, the course is focused on understanding and critically assessing the extent to which law at supranational level is managing the problematic relationship and balance between global trade freedoms and protection of human rights.
Expected learning outcomes
By the end of the course students are expected to acquire a solid understanding of international law, including recent developments in the field of commercial law, social law and human rights in the multilevel legal system dynamics. Sudents should be able to critically examine, analyse, interpret and assess the effectiveness of these legal regimes and approaches and how they intervene on each other. In addition, students will have a good understanding of the factors and processes driving the revision of the international legal framework and of situations in which issues of international law arise. In addition, students will develop the cognitive and technical skills to independently examine, research and analyse existing and emerging legal issues relating to clash and balance between global market order and social protection.
