LAW6001 EU Justice and Home Affairs

Description

Justice and Home Affairs is perhaps the fastest-growing area of European Union law and policy. The issues it deals with, such as crime, immigration and asylum, are sensitive and lie at the heart of State sovereignty. Legislation on these matters may have significant repercussions on the relationship between the individual and the State, and on the protection of human rights and civil liberties. The module will provide a detailed overview of the development and content of EU law and policy on Justice and Home Affairs. It will begin by placing this development in a socio-economic and political context, with emphasis being placed on the relationship of JHA policy with the development of a Single Market and the EU as an area without internal frontiers. The first semester focuses on various aspects of EU immigration and asylum law. The second semester focuses on EU criminal law and procedure.
