Course Description : This cours séminaire will cover the development and full display of European Protest Cultures in the central twenty-year period from 1956 to 1976. We will begin with a close look at the signiﬁcance of the calendar year 1956, which witnessed keynote events of great importance for the development of European protest cultures in both Western Europe (Algerian War, Suez Crisis) and Eastern Europe (Hungarian and Polish Revolts). Central attention will be placed throughout this course on the interaction between politics and culture. Thus, the role of Beat poetry and Beat music in the preparation of non-conformist outlooks will be studied side-by-side with the history of antinuclear weapons and anti-war movements. The speciﬁc contributions by students, workers and feminists will be considered, as well as particular events, such as Global 1968 or the 1974/5 Portuguese Revolution. Key political evolutions, such as the development of the New Left and, eventually, the Far Left will receive attention, at the same time that the phenomena of Hippie Cultures and the wave of experiments in communal living and workplace management will be considered. In short, the events of two central decades in the late twentieth century will be presented in a non-traditional fashion, emphasizing the non-conformist contributions which have helped shape European cultures and European democracy in the second half of the twentieth century. There will be a mixture of lectures and
EUROPEAN ECONOMIC LAW
Semester : Autumn Number of hours : 24 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Emmanuel GARDOUNIS (Professeur). Pedagogical Format : Seminar Course validation : The validation of this course will be the result of three notes : - A written essay in group (30% of the note) ; - Attendance note (30% of the note) ; - Written exam (40% of the note). Course Description : This course is divided into three parts : The ﬁrst part presents the historical, political and economic context in which the Internal Market of the EU was founded and the Institutions introducing the guidelines of the European economic policy. The objective of an open economy market with free competition is based on the respect of four fundamental freedoms : free movement of goods, free movement of persons, freedom of services and free movement of capital and payments. Their analysis will constitute the core of the second part of this course and will be done in the light of recent challenges for the European Institutions, such as the Greek crisis or UK's recent referendum in favor of Brexit. Furthermore, speciﬁc instruments ensuring equal juridical chances for all economic operators of member states complete the general frame in each ﬁeld of law. Therefore, a third part of the course examines the regulation of the internal market and the drafting of rules preserving free competition, but also the Europeanization of rules on corporate law and intellectual property law.
