About this course

The European Union is becoming an ever more complex entity that is difficult to grasp even for practitioners. At the same time, the European integration project has lately been facing distinct challenges that affect the core of the EU’s policy-making capacity as well as the political commitment of its Member States. The culmination of recent events creates dilemmas that go much further than the ‘deepening’ or ‘expanding’ integration paradigm and push the European Union to embody its mission more convincingly.

This summer school’s primary objective is to explain the post-Lisbon regime, assess how the novelties introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon in various policy areas have proved themselves in practice and observe how the EU’s new institutional structures, powers and procedures are responding to the challenges the Union faces.

The summer school has two principal aims, the first of which is to critically discuss the institutional and legal novelties brought by the Treaty of Lisbon and to explore how national and European administrative practices have complemented the new treaty framework. To this end, the EU’s institutional and decision-making frameworks will be revisited from the viewpoint of national administrations. Secondly, the event will specifically discuss whether the current institutional and legal setting of the EU enables it to face current challenges. We will discuss such questions as to how to safeguard the Rule of Law and Democracy, how to ensure the protection of Fundamental Rights in the EU, how to preserve the Eurozone and whether to expand it, how the European Public Prosecutor’s Office will add to the increased efforts to combat crimes against the EU‘s financial interest, as well as the question of the asylum and migration crisis and its effect on EU border security. The EU’s external action capabilities will also be discussed in view of the functioning and working practices of the European External Action Service. Lastly, the first lessons of the Brexit saga will be explored in light of the Article 50 TEU process and the question of maintaining close ties with a former EU Member State.

Who this course is for:

Experts from national administrations and EU Institutions; practitioners from various EU-regulated policy fields; and lawyers, consultants, journalists and other professionals dealing with the European Union who want to enhance their understanding of how the recent developments in the EU will have an impact on their work.

Course methodology and highlights:

Sessions will be conducted by two experts providing a short presentation followed by facilitated panel discussions, allowing for the exchange of ideas and addressing issues of concern based on case studies, where participants will be especially encouraged to share their respective experiences.

Module III - The Treaty of Lisbon’s impact on the EU’s area of freedom, security and justice

The third module discusses the developments and challenges underpinning the EU’s area of freedom security and justice, where discussions will start from establishment of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office and its role and function in combatting crimes against the EU’s financial interests, to the reform of the Common European Asylum System, ensuring a share of the burden across Member States and enhancing solidarity among each other, and the Schengen Area, where the enhanced security of EU borders is becoming an increasingly important expectation.

What you will learn in this course

The objective of the summer school is to provide national administrations, interest groups and practitioners affected by EU regulatory policy an enhanced understanding of how to work more effectively with the EU.

In essence, the course explores the tenets of the European Union and helps participants to understand the underlying political, social and economic dilemmas and evaluate European-level responses.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • understand what major events and polices shape the European Union today.

As we would like you to gain maximum benefit from this course, irrespective of your level of knowledge on the European Union, we suggest that you enrol on the first module and take part in the thematic discussion of the institutional setting and decision-making procedures of the EU. You will also be invited to visit the Court of Justice of the European Union and familiarise yourself with the EU’s role in preserving the founding principles of the EU, such as the rule of law, democracy and the protection of fundamental rights. The first module will also give guidance on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

Module II - From the European Monetary Union to the Banking Union

The second module concentrates on the discussion of the Eurozone, how it has served the needs of the participating EU Member States and the immediate perspectives of this heightened form of integration.

The fourth module discusses the EU’s external actions. Discussions begin at the new powers granted to the EU by the Treaty of Lisbon and then specifically focus on the role of the European External Action Service, the EU’s external trade policy and, finally, the current stage of and lessons from Brexit.
