LAwTTIP Summer School ''Fundamental Rights and EU Trade Agreements''


The International Research Centre on European Law (C.I.R.D.E.) of the University of Bologna, jointly with the King's College London, the University of Strasbourg and the University of Rennes1, and in cooperation with the Fondazione Cassa dei Risparmi di Forlì, the University Residential Centre of Bertinoro and the Fondazione Alma Mater, will conduct the LAwTTIP Summer School on "Fundamental Rights and EU Trade Agreements" from 25 to 30 June 2017, in Bertinoro.

The Summer School aims to provide graduates, practitioners, civil servants and young researchers (Ph.D. candidates – Post docs) with an understanding of the role played by fundamental rights within EU trade agreements. This year, the focus of the Summer School will allow the coverage of specific issues generated by the interaction between fundamental rights and trade agreements, together with more general lectures on the protection of fundamental rights in Europe. This implies, essentially, recent developments on the interaction between the European Convention of Human Rights and the European Union systems of protection of fundamental rights and shortcomings on EU trade agreements.

The course will consist in 30 hours of lectures and/or seminars held in English or French, which will take place from 9:00-13:00 and 15:00-17:00 each day. The course fosters the interaction between professors and students, who are expected to demonstrate, during the lectures, a strong interest and a general knowledge of the topics.
Students are encouraged in actively participating in the courses.

Participants are selected on a first to come first to serve basis, provided that they have a sufficient knowledge of the working languages. Selected participants will have complimentary 5-night half-board accommodation (lunch and breakfast) at the University Centre of Bertinoro. Participation is free of charge for selected participants.

Please be aware that the email and the attachment constitutes your application form.
