Full course description
The goal of this course is to give students insight in the core of the ‘substantive law’ of the European Union. In that light the course rests on two pillars: the four freedoms and competition law. These areas are the foundations of the economic and social order of the European Union. The course deals in detail with the free movement of goods (both financial a quantitative restrictions), the free movement of persons, freedom of establishment and services with an emphasis on the position of family members and the recognition of professional qualifications. The position of Third Country Nationals is also dealt with. In the light of competition law agreements and concerted practices; abuse of a dominant position; mergers; public undertaking and state aid, as well as enforcement of competition law are dealt with.
