UCLan Cyprus is happy to announce the commencement of a Jean Monnet Module entitled “The Law of Financial and Economic Governance in the EU” run by Dr. Stéphanie Laulhé Shaelou of the School of Law as Module Leader and Academic Coordinator. The University was among the successful candidates selected by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Union to run Jean Monnet Activities at prestigious institutions in the field of European integration around the world for the period 2014-2017. It is also the first time that a Jean Monnet Module is offered by a law school in Cyprus. The Module aims at developing a specialised and unique focus in EU law, within the framework of the LLM curriculum delivered by the School of Law. This focus will be based primarily upon research-informed teaching on the law and governance of finance and economic policy in the EU, in the global and multidimensional context of the financial and sovereign debt crisis in the EU and beyond, and will promote an interdisciplinary approach. New technologies will be used throughout and include a whole range of online support tools available on campus and remotely. This module will also give the opportunity to students, professionals and the wider public to take part in expert seminars, guest lectures, roundtable discussions and a conference on the topic, as well as to contribute to an open access online platform, to be created and supported by the Module.
