Pedagogical Method : During the classes we will keep lecturing to the minimum and engage in discussion with the students. Therefore, for each class you must read the assignments speciﬁc to the topic of the class beforehand and be able to discuss them in depth. This preparation is necessary to follow classes proactively. The class will focus mainly on legal, but if necessary also on economic and political issues. Course Description : The 20th century was the scene for the turn from bilateralism to multilateralism and regionalism in the framework of international relations. The phenomenon of regionalism is always the result of a social construction, not of some kind of natural process. There is always a common social reason at the core of each regional integration project. Therefore we should consider this element when studying a regional entity. The course covers in detail the constitutional foundations of the most advanced organisation of integration, the European Union and its internal market, the world's largest domestic market. During each session, we will situate the topic of the class in the ongoing debates and challenges the EU is currently facing (economic crisis, Brexit, state of the rule of law, immigration…). In the ﬁrst part of the course, devoted to the Constitutional Foundations of the European Union, we shall focus on the Actors, the Processes, the
Principles and the Tools that frame the process of European integration in legal terms. We start with the sources of the European project and study the institutions of the European Union : the Commission, the Council of Ministers, the European Council, the European Parliament and the European Court of Justice. Our objective is to understand the internal dynamics of the institutional setting as it is since the Lisbon treaty entered into force (December 2009), so as to assess each institution's impact on law-making. We pay particular attention to legal tools, legal integration and the Judicial Architecture of the European Union. The ﬁrst part of the course also focus on the protection of fundamental rights in the EU (case law, Charter) with a special attention to the current negotiations on the accession of the EU to the ECHR. The last class will explore the limits of EU constitutional law.
