#10 European Union Law

Many supranational organisations exist, be it the African Union, the Eurasian Economic Union, or the Association of Caribbean States. In this episode we will focus on just one of them: the European Union. Political parties all over its territory preach euroscepticism, which even resulted in the United Kingdom voting to leave: the infamous Brexit. But what is the European Union, its law, and how did it develop in the first place?

In this tenth episode of Maastricht Law Talk, Andrea Ott introduces us to the world of European Union Law. Andrea is professor of European Union External Relations Law at Maastricht University and member of CLEER. Before starting her current position, she held both assistant and associate professorships of EU Institutional Law. She also taught several courses on External Relations Law and European Union Law in general, both on a Master’s and Bachelor’s level.

Before you start listening, check out our episodes on What is Law?, ConstitutionsBrexit(EU) Citizenship, and International Law. If you have listened to them already, even better!

Andrea and I talk about

  • why the EU provides peace and prosperity,
  • what coal and steel has to do with anything,
  • how the EU is organised and how it developed,
  • regulations, directives, treaties, and decisions,
  • the four freedoms (goods, workers, services, and capital)
  • who makes the laws that the press always talks about,
  • why Brexit is not that surprising,
  • and much more.
