Summer Course on Global Αdministrative Law in Practice- ELGS

Global Αdministrative Law in Practice - Perspectives from the Bench

25-29 July, 2022.

Will run ONLINE for this year.

Τhe program is offered only in syncronous e-learning mode with relative adjustments.

Global problems need global solutions. And global administrative law, or the law regulating administrative-like institutions beyond the State, attempts to provide such solutions.

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

The idea is 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.

Special focus will be given to the standard-setting role performed by judicial and quasi-judicial mechanisms on two fields: 1. human rights in Europe, with a discussion between two former Presidents of the European Court of Human Rights (Prof. Linos-Alexandre Sicilianos and Judge Guido Raimondi), and 2. globalfinancial regulation, with an exchange of views between Prof. Giorgio Sacerdoti, a former member of the WTO Appellate Body and Prof. Christos Gortsos, a Member of the Board of Appeal of the European Supervisory Authorities. Students will be given the opportunity to interact with the speakers and discuss with them the challenges they faced while serving in their official capacity.

The regulation of such issues of global concern transcends national borders and involves diverse legal orders. And as national administrations are increasingly becoming agents of global governance, the dichotomy between the national and the international becomes increasingly blurred. The program covers the different ways of interaction between such different regulatory systems (global, regional, national) but also the novel administrative procedures, review mechanisms, and decisional principles that promote greater accountability in decision-making by the proliferating variety of global regulatory administrative bodies.

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.

The participants will attend courses in the various fields conducted by eminent professors from prestigious Universities from all over the world. All the courses will be seminar-like classes and colloquia, and the active class-participation will be encouraged.
