With this newsletter, we want to inform you about the Centre’s research activities so as to reach out to a wider audience, to facilitate fruitful discussion with our scholars and to allow for critical input on ideas and research projects.
The MCEL Master Working Paper series seeks to give excellent Master students the opportunity to publish their final thesis and to make their work accessible to a wide audience.
Student Papers on State Aid and Public Procurement have been written by master students who attended the course of the same name, which is offered by the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University. The course is financed by the European Commission (Educational, Audiovisional and Culture Executive Agency) and is set up within the framework of the Life Long Learning Program. It was granted in 2011 after a successful application for a Jean Monnet Module.

Students involved in the MaRBLE project in the academic years 2010-2011 and 2013-2014, have been allowed to participate in pioneering interdisciplinary research investigating the complex relationships between science, society, politics and law. It offered students a chance to make a positive contribution to the emerging interfaculty research programme on risk, uncertainty, law and governance. They have analysed controversies around innovation where the risk aspects of trade and the trade aspects of risk are at stake, with a particular focus on the regulation of GMOs. These papers, written in the context of the course 'Regulating Innovation, Trade and Uncertain Risks' taught by Marjolein B.A. van Asselt and MCEL member Ellen Vos, have been collected in a single e-publication.
Maastricht University's Faculty of Law publishes a series of working papers every two months. The working paper series aims to further excellence in scholarship. It allows Maastricht-based authors to bring their work-in-progress to a wide audience, facilitating fruitful discussion and critical input on nascent ideas and projects to the benefit of both author and reader.
The Maastricht Centre for European Law is also involved in the publication of the Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law. This journal aims to provide literature which enables both the European professional and academic lawyer to grapple with the special difficulties presented by the concept of Ius commune Europaeum.
