Knowledge of comparative and international sources of law and legal texts regarding the trade policy of the European Union, and to be able to analyze and assess them.
3. Course content
The common commercial policy is one of the pillars of the external relations of the European Union. Relying on the rules of the customs union it regulates the trade relations of the member states with third countries. The trade policy of the European Union aims to (internally) strengthen the competitiveness of Europe and (externally) exploit the chances of international openness. This also responds to two objectives of the Lisbon Strategy, namely growth and employment and meeting the challenge of globalization.
After a discussion and examination of (parts of) the Lisbon Strategy, this course deals with a number of trade defence instruments, aimed to protect European companies against trade barriers and unfair trade practices.
