Program Overview

Program Description:

July 26 - 30, 2021

Will run ONLY ONLINE for this year.

Due to the COVID-19 conditions the program this year will be offered only in syncronous e-learning mode with relative adjustments.

This week-long summer school focuses on the increasing use of administrative law-type mechanisms within the regulatory institutions of global governance (international financial institutions, technical standardization organisations, international networks, public-private partnerships, private entities etc). The school provides a unique forum for a critical engagement with emerging forms of global administration in today’s transnational legal landscape.

Designed for: Master or PhD level students from law or other social sciences as well as practitioners and professionals: legal advisors, lawyers and officials of international organizations and domestic administrations who seek ways to enhance their professional skills by keeping up-to-date with emergent global regulation issues.

Ιdea of the Program: 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.
