International and European Economic Law

A legal look at
modern international economy

Of the many branches of international law, the one that studies and regulates the International Economy is emerging today as one of the most crucial. In the 21st century, which is being erased from its capitalist orientation, a multitude of international regulatory texts have as their object the regulation of international economic activities. The relevant legislative texts have emerged either through the work of international organizations or independently of them. This legislative move marks an attempt to legally delineate the economic practices of states, as subjects of the international community, and to address the contemporary problems of the globalized economic space.
 
In the October Tribute we will try to approach the more specific areas in which what we call International Economic Law in a broad sense is analyzed. They will be examined  the rules governing Investment Benefits Law within the EU, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the international financial system will also be analyzed as far as possible. Finally, we will take a look at current issues concerning International Trade Law and the European Single Market, the role of the WTO, and competition in the field of international trade relations.

Just Collab

Collaboration of Just in Case with the team of Get Involved

As part of Just in Case's October tribute to International and European Economic Law, our team worked with the Get Involved team.

 

The Get Involved team is a youth initiative that started in 2017 and organizes actions targeting the student public. Its goal is the dissemination and expansion of economic education through hybrid actions that focus on experiential education. Get Involved's main activity is the European Central Bank Simulation Conference, the only one at pan-European level.

 

The fruit of the collaboration of Just in Case with the team of Get Involved is the organization of the upcoming Online Seminar "International Trade and International Investment: Significance and Contemporary Challenges".

The aim of the seminar is to seek and highlight together a legal perspective on the modern international economy.

Seminar "International Trade and International Investment: Significance and Contemporary Challenges"
 

The event will be of seminar type, with a series of lectures on the two main topics, International Commercial Law and International Investment Law. Our goal is to delve into some more specific directions within these sectors, through a legal-economic perspective.

A joint effort of the teams of Just in Case and Get Involved is from the beginning to achieve the maximum possible interaction in this event of cooperation. For this reason, we coordinated a group of undergraduate and postgraduate students, who in turn proceeded to create Study Guides. The Study Guides will be sent to the participants, with the confirmation email of their participation.

On the basis of these Guides, and after the main program of the event, there will be an optional round table discussion between the participants, in order to discuss and analyze more interactively some individual issues and questions.
