Supported by the EU, FGV welcomes applications for Jean Monnet Chair course

The Jean Monnet Chair of FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio) is receiving applications for the next edition of the Compared Regionalism course. This edition will feature nationally and internationally renowned guest professors, particularly Anne Weyembergh and Ramona Coman, from Université libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). The course is free, has no prerequisites, and is open to undergraduate and graduate students, who can apply to the selection process until January 22.

Classes begin on February 21, covering the following topics, in addition to studies on Institutional Law of the European Union and Mercosur: Human Rights, Law and Religion, Middle East, Refugees and Immigration, Compared Tax Law, and Harmonization of Private International Law in the European Union.

Coordinated by Direito Rio’s professor of International Law, Paula Wojcikiewicz Almeida, the course is supported by the European Commission and is part of the efforts to promote teaching, research, and reflection on topics related to regional integration in higher education institutions both in and out of the block. One of the course’s main focus points is the creation of knowledge networks with other Jean Monnet Chairs in Europe and other continents, promoting an exchange of ideas and fostering research between its participants, in addition to disseminating teaching and research activities carried out at FGV.

In addition to directing research on topics related to European integration and encouraging new generations of professors and researchers, the Chair’s professors also prepare students seeking to enter a global job market, with a growing demand for professionals who are able to manage different legal systems and the specific rules for all countries within the EU.
