Law

Delivered by Prof. Imelda Maher

This module asks the question: what is the role of law in the governance of the EU? This involves identifying and analysing the nature of the rule of law, the constitutionalisation of the EU and the nature of governance in general and in the EU in particular. Having briefly reviewed EU legal structures, THe module turns to specific examples of governance structures in the EU especially networks and soft law noting their relationship with hard law and the extent to which they challenge or meet rule of law requirements such as accountability. In the process the interplay of law and governance in particular sectors such as fiscal governance, competition and the internal market are analysed.
