The aim of this course is to give a brief overview about the integration phenomenon and its legal framework from both International law and EU law perspectives. This inter-disciplinary course will entail historic, as well as current, international and EU issues, including critical challenges encountered by various institutions and organs. Particular attention will be focused on key legal documents, on settings and enforcement of politics, and on the participation of courts and tribunals in these processes. At the end of the course there will be a closed book written exam (a multi-choice test) and a short oral exam for which both credit and a grade will be awarded. In order to be allowed to sit for the exam, the students must successfully complete the assignment – a small research project regarding current integration issues.
