FGV welcomes applications for special edition of Jean Monnet Chair

Rio de Janeiro Law School’s Jean Monnet Chair has opened registrations for the next edition of the Compared Regionalism course. This edition’s special guests are professors Emmanuelle Bribosia, Isabelle Rorive, and Erik Van den Haute, from the Free University of Brussels (Belgium). The course is free, has no prerequisites, and is open to undergraduate and graduate students, who can apply to the selection process until July 14.

In addition to covering European Union studies, the classes scheduled to start on August 2 will also cover International Law, International Organizations Law, and Human Rights, among other integration systems, such as Mercosur, Andean Community, Central American Integration System, and Pacific Alliance.

Coordinated by Paula Wojcikiewicz Almeida, professor of International and European Law at Rio de Janeiro Law School, the course is supported by the European Commission and is part of the block’s effort to encourage teaching, research, and insights on subjects related to European integration in higher education institutions both inside and outside the block. One of its main goals is to build knowledge networks with other Jean Monnet Chairs in Europe and other continents, sharing ideas and promoting research among its members, as well as disseminating teaching and research activities carried out at Fundação Getulio Vargas.

In addition to advising research projects on subjects related to European integration and encouraging new generations of professors and researchers, the Chair’s professors also prepare students to join the global job market, which shows an increasing demand for professionals capable of handling different legal systems and the specific rules of all 28 member countries within the EU.
