With the start of the 2022-2023 spring semester approaching, the staff of the Jean Monnet Module in European and International Law (EIEL) is now able to announce the academic calendar for its core teaching activities.
The EIEL Module, now in its third year of implementation, has recently hosted the first webinar of its 2022-2023 series, featuring Dr Marie-Catherine Petersmann (Senior Researcher at the Tilburg Law School) for a presentation on regional courts and the adjudication of conflicts between environmental protection and human rights.
The core teaching activities of the EIEL Module will start on 20 February, with a series of lectures taught by EIEL Academic Coordinator Prof Riccardo Pavoni as part of the general course in European Union law offered by the Department of Law of the University of Siena, which will run from 20 February to 14 April. On 17 April, Prof Pavoni will introduce a series of fundamental notions of European environmental law. He will discuss the historical and legal evolution of this field of EU law, as well as its legal basis, objectives, sources, and key principles.
On 5 and 8 May, Prof Elisa Morgera (Director of the One Ocean Hub and Professor of Global Environmental Law at the University of Strathclyde) will dedicate two lectures to the origins and main features of international environmental law. On 12 and 15 May, the module will then feature two consecutive keynote lectures by Prof Christine Bakker (Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies), who will return to the University of Siena after her initial involvement in the project in the previous academic year, on EU law and climate change. Lastly, on 19 May, Dr Dario Piselli will conclude the course with a lecture exploring the most recent normative developments in the European regulation of biodiversity and chemicals.
In due course, additional webinars and dissemination activities may also be announced by the EIEL staff, in order to complement the teaching activities of the module.
