This course is aimed at both regular WU students (Bachelor Program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences) as well as incoming international students. It provides advanced knowledge of some of the core areas of European economic law, including the development of the internal market (fundamental freedoms), the rules on competition within the internal market (as regards anti-competitive agreements, monopoly and oligopoly, State aid etc.) as well as EU external economic relations (WTO, CETA, TTIP, etc.).
PLEASE NOTE: While it is, in principle, possible to attend this course on its own, it builds on and further develops some of the topics discussed in "European Law and Economics", held by Dr. Katrin Forgó (#437 and #1297, respectively). For regular WU students, both courses, taken together, form the elective module "European Economic Law" (Wahlfach "Europäisches Wirtschaftsrecht"). As these courses take place consecutively, it is possible to attend both of them in the same term.
PLEASE NOTE that this course will presumably not be offered in summer term 2020
