Inhalt According to Art. 217 TFEU, the European Union (EU) "may conclude with one or more third countries or international organisations agreements establishing an association involving reciprocal rights and obligations, common action and special procedure". In terms of economic integration, particularly important examples of such association agreements are the European Economic Area Agreement (EEA; with the three EFTA States Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), the Ankara Agreement (with Turkey) and the so-called "Bilaterals I" (with Switzerland). However, the list of states with which the EU has concluded association agreements is much longer (see https://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/countries-and-regions/negotiations-and-agreements/, where the nature of the agreement is indicated in the list under “Agreements in place”). Perhaps surprisingly, the long list of such agreements also includes the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the United Kingdom (post-Brexit trade agreement). New association agreements are at present being negotiated with the so-called AMS states (Andorra, Monaco, San Marino).

In legal practice, the term "association" is also used in a broader sense to include certain agreements not formally based on Art. 217 TFEU (e.g., the Schengen and Dublin Association Agreements concluded with Switzerland).

This course focuses on both the institutional aspects (including in particular competences and procedure for the adoption, revision and cancellation of association agreements on the side of the EU; interpretation and management of the treaty; dispute resolution) and the substantive content of association agreements (with a particular focus on economic integration and the EU’s internal market). The course begins with three introductory sessions (including also an exercise session) that are intended to provide general basic knowledge. This is then followed by sessions in which the students present topics of their choice and particular interest.
Lernziele Students deepen their knowledge on European Union (EU) law acquired on the bachelor level, using the particular focus of external relations law and, more specifically, association regimes between the EU and third countries. They are able to understand und work with treaties concluded by the EU with third countries.
Literatur A list of basic literature is uploaded on ADAM.
Bemerkungen THe dates and times of the Colloquium will be published in due time.
