OVERVIEW

The course deals with some aspects of the (more or less indirect) impact of International Law and European Union Law on the regulation of family relationships, in terms of specialist analysis.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course, focused in monographic terms on the analysis of a specific area of International and EU Law, aims to introduce students to the knowledge and interpretation of supranational regulatory processes from the perspective of their direct or indirect impact on domestic law.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Attendance and active participation will enable the student to
(i) identify the supranational legal sources capable of affecting the regulation of family relationships;
(ii) understand how the "multilevel" regulation of such relationships affects family relations, identifying the relationship between the rules intended to affect the same matter and the correct approach to possible inconsistencies;
(iii) understand what role the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights plays in this context;
(iv) critically analyse the legislative and case-law material made available, in particular by identifying the possible effects of the application of the rules of supranational sources and by drawing up an independent judgment on the lines of argument expressed in the context of the decisions to be taken into consideration (especially national decisions on the merits and on the legitimacy);
(v) assessing the compatibility of domestic regulatory interventions, de iure condito or de iure condendo, with the obligations arising from participation in the international and European Union systems.

PREREQUISITES

In order to attend the course successfully, students are strongly advised to pass the International Law and European Union Law (I) exams first.

TEACHING METHODS

Distance learning is provided via the Teams platform; the code to access the class is 5d174qc.
The lectures are supplemented by the analysis of regulatory and case law material, and are carried out with the help of documentation made available on AulaWeb.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course, divided into two parts of 18 hours each, is an in-depth study of certain topics covered in the International Law and European Union Law (I) courses.

More specifically, the topics covered are:

Part I: The family in the perspective of fundamental freedoms and rights
This part will analyse the evolution of Community and European Union policy on family law, taking into account the "direct" and "indirect" interventions of the institutions as well as national and Court of Justice case law.
In particular, the topics covered are (i) the techniques and legal bases used by the European Union for action on family law; (ii) freedom of movement of EU and non-EU citizens with particular reference to the right to family reunification; (iii) fundamental rights in the perspective of family protection between the European Union and the ECHR.

Part II: The family in private international law
This part will deal with the profiles inherent to the international private and procedural law of the family with reference to both the European and national rules. In particular, the following topics will be considered: (i) dissolution of the marriage bond; (ii) parental responsibility; (iii) maintenance obligations; (iv) property relations between spouses and the property consequences of registered partnerships.
