SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence in EU and International Law II
SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence in EU and International Law is implemented in partnership by Europa-Institut and SEELS network. The project is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It is the longest standing project that we are implementing with our partners Europa Institut.
The cluster of excellence aims to develop common structures and to increasingly coordinate the research and teaching of European and International Law, including the development of common strategies on cross-border regional and local cooperation and on the EU Neighborhood Policy in general. In 2019 this project was awarded an extension till the end of 2020, and majority of the activities which were present in the first instalment of this project such as the very popular summer schools, research stays for PhD candidates and professors alike in the Europa Institut and the region, e learning modules, PhD colloquium, librarian workshops as well as yearly conferences on relevant EU and International Law topics remain.
All of these activities are planned in somewhat altered form in 2020, due to the developments related to the global pandemic of Covid 19. Wherever possible the planned activities will be conducted in vivo, but due to the specific situation caused by this global event that has a strong effect on the mobility, some of the activities might be reorganized and held online. The decision for these changes will in any case be dependent on the global developments and policies, but we will work to organize them in best manner given the circumstances.

Rule of Law - Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
“Rule of law:Arbitration as an opportunity for peaceful dispute settlement” aiming to increase and improve the use of Dispute Resolution throughout the Western Balkans and to explain what makes it a viable alternative to going to court. In addition, the project aims to raise the awareness for the rule of law in the field of justice, especially in regards to legal disputes. The project is a form of a continuation of the previous set of projects which are centered around the summer schools organized in partnership of Europa Institut. It is planned for the implementation in 2020 and as such was affected by the events related to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, its implementation although mildly altered is still in process with the majority of its activities set to be implemented online.
