Endorsed by the European Union, the EU-South American School on Global Governance Course presents this economic bloc’s global governance practices and their relevance to South America. The program encompasses a variety of topics in the center’s three main research areas: Global Regulation, Global Litigation, and Human Rights and Democracy.
The topics explored include multilevel decision-making systems in international organizations, foreign policy, tax and environmental regulation, investment law, human rights and democracy, dispute settlement systems, legitimacy and international accountability.
In addition to FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School professors, the EU-South American School on Global Governance Course will feature the collaboration of specialists from institutions in countries such as Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom, as well as the European Parliament, over the project’s three-year life.
