    OVERVIEW

    Aim of the course is to deepen the studying of the most significant global challenges of this era and, among them, in particular, the one concerning migration issues through a multilevel legal perspective, which considers the legal framework of EU law and the solution adopted for its adaptation in the Italian legal order as well as in some of the European States.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of the course, students will acquire advanced knowledge and methodological competences in specific areas of EU law dealing with cross-border and international challenges; will understand complex legal situations, and will have the means for critical independent legal thinking and propose innovative solutions.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The  "EU law and global challenges" module aims to provide students with the methodological tools and notions necessary to understand, contextualise and analyze the role of the European Union as a global actor and the scope of European Union law (also) outside the European system.
