Summer Course: Global Administrative Law in Practice - Perspectives from the Bench
Online Only: 25 - 29 July 2022
The idea is to discuss the latest developments on global administrative law from a practical perspective and cover both constitutional and institutional issues, and issues of soft governance. Topics of global interest that have an impact in daily lives of citizens, such as Brexit or responses to the Coronavirus pandemic, will be analyzed under a transnational perspective. The regulation of such issues of global concern transcends national borders and involves diverse legal orders. And as national administrations are increasingly becoming agents of global governance, the dichotomy between the national and the international becomes increasingly blurred. The program covers the different ways of interaction between such different regulatory systems (global, regional, national) but also the novel administrative procedures, review mechanisms, and decisional principles that promote greater accountability in decision-making by the proliferating variety of global regulatory administrative bodies. Deadline: 30 June 2022
