Event Details

United Europe’s 12th Young Professionals Seminar will take place in Freiburg/Breisgau from April 20 to 22, 2018. For this workshop, we will focus on:

Understanding Europe
Regulatory policy in the EU

The key to understand the EU lies in understanding its institutional structures and its decision-making processes. At our Young Professionals Seminar in Freiburg, we will focus on the question, how policy in the EU works: How laws are made in Europe, how contracts come into being and about the importance of a functioning regulatory policy.

We will therefore take a closer look at the main EU institutions, in particular the Parliament, the Council and the Commission. We will define their tasks, identify the institutional interests arising from their respective composition, explore the internal structures of the institutions, analyze the inter-institutional relations and discuss potential reforms. The seminar will also shed some light on the opaque process of adopting primary and secondary EU legislation. We will analyze the various stages of the law-making process, from the Commission’s proposal to the trialogue, consider the role of national parliaments and explore the relevance of comitology.
We are also discussing the Euro crisis and the economic impact of Brexit and will – as far as possible – provide clarity in the Brexit-Chaos.

The workshop takes place in cooperation with the Centre for European Policy (CEP) in the Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg.
