Federalism and the European Union

3 ECTS / Semester / English

The main objective of the course is to reconsider the European Union institutional set-up and legal order as a federal-type bargain between the union of attributed powers and the autonomy of its members. The purpose is to look beyond the basic features of the EU legal order and reassess them in their wider context. It is intended that by the end of the courses, students will have been familiarized with the political, legislative and judicial features of the EU institutional settlement and be able to critically engage with the open issues of current and future European constitutional refurbishments.
