The topics examined during the course entail the nature of EU Law and the position of the EU legal order, the analysis of the EU law-producing mechanism, the main elements of EU administrative operation and function, and the decision making procedures. All these are seen through the spectre of the various types of governance and management provided for by the EU financial regulation, including an analysis of the system of EU Budgetary Governance, as well as an overview of the provisions on the Single (Internal) Market, the schemes on Judicial Review in the EU and the measures adopted to protect the EU financial interests against fraud and similar activities. In addition to the lectures undertaken by the Chair holder, there will be guest lectures by experts on issues relating to EU Law and EU Budgetary Governance and Audit. Teaching will be supplemented by active participation of the students in the form of undertaking research and submitting essays which, after correction by the Chair holder, will be presented by their authors to their fellow students, and then there will be discussion on the respective topics (discussion groups).
