The Jean Monnet Module

The Institute for European Studies of the Université libre de Bruxelles coordinates since September 2018 a Jean Monnet Module dealing with the rule of law and mutual trust in global and European governance. Professor Ramona Coman, President of the IEE-ULB  is the project’s coordinator.

In recent years the salience of these topics has considerably increased not only within the EU but also in other regions/regional organizations. The aim of this Module is to create a platform of academic and expert discussion that will shade light on current debates about the rule of law in general and the independence of the judiciary in EU member states and beyond. The Module seeks to bring together scholars and experts with academic backgrounds in different disciplines and plural views on the topic.
