Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The module “Comparative European and Caribbean Integration Law” is a master-level (LL.M.) 7 week (42 hrs) course, intended for students with a basic knowledge of European or Caribbean integration law, but also for students to study the basic concepts and legal instruments of regional integration. This module will bring the study of EU integration to the fore in the Caribbean region and will create increased interest in and understanding of the objectives, implementation and consequences of regional integration in the EU and the Caribbean. During this course students will compare the legal frameworks that have shaped and have been shaped by the integration processes of the EU on the one side and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) on the other side. It is divided into five main parts: 1. background and historic development; 2. institutional law, 3. substantive law, 4. cooperation between CARICOM and EU (EPA) and 5. the value and challenges of comparative regional integration law, placing it in the emerging field of comparative regionalism studies.Students are required to carry out independent research and the results will be collected and organised in a freely accessible on-line database. Throughout the course webinars will be held with international experts in the field. The final examination is an evaluation of a research paper and presentation based on independent research.Since Aruba is a small island state, and UA students represent the top tier of academic education, this module will have a lasting impact on a national scale, since the students of the University go on directly to be the leaders both in the public and private sector in Aruba. The comparative approach to EU and Caribbean Integration Law will foster a more critical understanding of EU law and foster an understanding of integration as being an issue relevant worldwide and not just in the EU.
