CRoLEV – The Rule of Law and European Values in the modern ages

The School of Law of UCLan Cyprus is pleased to announce a forthcoming online intensive course on Responses to terrorism and other illicit activities in Europe in the CRoLEV Intensive Course Series entitled “The Rule of Law and European Values in the modern ages”.

This 10-hour online course has one overarching aim – to consider the rationale behind, legal basis and legal consequences of the responses to these illicit activities at the national, regional, pan-European and global levels. Accordingly, the course seeks to familiarise participants with the rule of law and other key concepts in regular use within or beyond the relevant literature. The course introduces a series of instructive case studies on terrorism, other illicit activities and the responses to them.

More specifically, the course will cover the following five themes in each of the five 2-hour online sessions:

  • Emerging threats to the rule of law and other European values in the UK and the EU: An Overview
  • Countering terrorism in the UK and the EU: Is the Eastern Mediterranean the ‘Achilles Heel’ of Europe?
  • Countering illicit financial activities in the UK and the EU: Is the Eastern Mediterranean the ‘Trojan Horse’ of Europe?
  • Countering human trafficking and smuggling in Europe: the case of Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Prosecuting human trafficking cases in Cyprus: challenges and lessons learned

This course is directed towards and, thus, relevant for any advanced student, lawyer, law enforcement officer, other professional and anybody else interested in terrorism,counter-terrorism, illicit activities in Europe and responses to them. The course will be delivered in the English language at an intermediate-to-advanced level.
