OVERVIEW

 

The module wishes to offer a general overview of the EU action in transport matters and - to that end - analyses the relevcant sources of law (namely primary and secondary EU legislation, case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, soft law).

The module is divided in two parts:

- the first one analyses fundamental notions of EU law

- the second one deepens the study of EU legislative provisions in transport and safety.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The module aims at providing to students the essential research and analysis tools in the field of EU (and international) transport law by studying, on the one hand, the specificities of the Union, its sources of law and relationships with domestic law, and, on the other, the relevant legal framework and policy in transport matters (maritime, air, road, and rail transport), highlighting common and divergent marks between the different fields, and their impact on safety, access - and management - of infrastructures, and access to the market.
