Prof. Pavoni’s lectures will deal with ‘Sustainable Development and Environmental Protection in European Union Law‘ (15 February) and ‘Sustainable Trade and Environmental Protection in the European Single Market‘” (16 February). They will take place under the PhD course’s module on “Sustainable Development and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights”, which will also feature contributions from Professors Francesco Francioni and Ferdinando Franceschelli.
On 27-28 November, Prof. Riccardo Pavoni, in his quality of academic coordinator of the EULawSD module, will participate in Brussels in the kick-off meeting of new beneficiaries of Jean Monnet Activities (co-organised by EACEA).
The meeting will be organized together with the 2017 edition of the Jean Monnet biennial Conference (BiCo). This year’s edition will be devoted to the current major political turning point in EU history and its consequences for the future of the European integration. This theme has been very high on the agenda of political and academic debates recently and is about to gain even more relevance in the light of the Commission’s White Paper, the speech on the state of the union by president Juncker and also major political developments in EU member states in the course of 2017.
As a consequence, the conference objective is to allow debate on important EU-policy issues but also to disseminate information on more technical issues for the new grant holders.
Le informazioni relative al corso di Diritto dell’Unione Europea e Sviluppo Sostenibile (EULawSD) sono adesso disponibili sulla Guida dello Studente 2017/2018 del Dipartimento di Giurisprudenza dell’Università degli Studi di Siena.
Il corso, co-finanziato dall’Unione Europea quale Modulo Jean Monnet (Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2017 – EAC/A03/2016), esamina la relazione tra l’ordinamento giuridico dell’Unione Europea e il concetto di sviluppo sostenibile nelle sue quattro dimensioni (economica, sociale, ambientale e di governance) e alla luce dell’Agenda 2030 e relativi Obiettivi per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile (Sustainable Development Goals) approvati dall’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite il 25 settembre 2015.
Il corso offre agli studenti la possibilità di approfondire le loro conoscenze in materia di diritto dello sviluppo sostenibile alla luce del quadro giuridico internazionale ed europeo, ed illustra in particolar modo l’azione interna ed esterna dell’Unione Europea rilevante per l’attuazione degli Obiettivi per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile delle Nazioni Unite.
On 26 July 2017, the Education, Audiovisuals and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission announced the results of its annual call for co-funding of Jean Monnet Activities under the Erasmus+ Programme (Call EAC/A03/2016).
Among the 833 proposals received by the EACEA for Jean Monnet teaching and research activities, 141 were selected for funding. The proposal for a module on “European Union Law and Sustainable Development” (EULawSD), presented by Prof. Riccardo Pavoni of the University of Siena together with Mr. Dario Piselli (Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies), Prof. Sonia Carmignani, Prof. Federico Lenzerini, Prof. Patrizia Vigni and Prof. Alessandro Palmieri (all of the University of Siena), was one of them. The project activities will now be hosted by the Department of Law of the University of Siena and implemented over the course of three years.
EULawSD seeks to explore the ever-expanding corpus of European Union Law relating to sustainable development, with an emphasis on its interactions with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in September 2015. The module will consist of an annual 40-hour course primarily aimed at students of the Single Cycle Degree Programme in Law at the University of Siena, but also open to students from the Political Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences departments. The course will be complemented, on an annual basis, by a keynote opening lecture, a final expert roundtable, a dedicated website, and a series of webinars.
