Even if you don’t like Hollywood (superhero) movies this clip may help you to understand globalization…and think about the rules necessary to use its benefits for all !

Even if you don’t like Hollywood (superhero) movies this clip may help you to understand globalization…and think about the rules necessary to use its benefits for all!

Economist Tyler Cowen and political scientist Ian Bremmer examine the four different stages of globalization, and what each stage has meant for the world. The progressively faster movement of goods, services, and information has had enormous effects on how our planet operates. In the next video, Tyler and Ian will explain a fundamental concept of understanding globalization: creative destruction.

Congratulations to Saarland University (where I regularly teach as visiting professor) for being among the 24 newly selected “European Universities” selected by the European Commission !

European Universities Initiative | Allgemeine und berufliche Bildung

Selected from 62 applications, the 24 newly selected European Universities involve 165 higher education institutions from 26 Member States and other countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme (see Annex). They will deepen cooperation between their institutions, their students and staff and pool online and physical resources, courses, expertise, data and infrastructure. Working closer together will leverage their ability to tackle the challenges they are faced with during the recovery, and beyond. It will help them to foster inclusive green and digital transitions for the benefit of their students and all Europeans.

European Universities show first results

The Commission recently conducted a survey of the already existing 17 European Universities selected last year. The results show that 96% of the institutions think they would have been better prepared to face the coronavirus pandemic if their European University had already been fully operational (they only started 6 to 9 months ago). More than 60% of them consider that being part of a European University has already been helpful in addressing the current difficulties linked to the crisis. Good examples include the creation of virtual inter-university campuses, offering joint blended courses and common teaching units integrated in the curricula of all the member universities. European Universities also aim to further support lifelong learning by providing learners of all ages with the opportunity to obtain micro-credentials, awarded after the completion of short courses or modules.

European Universities include different types of higher education institutions, from universities of applied sciences, technical universities and film and media art schools to comprehensive and research-intensive universities. They will involve around 280 higher education institutions from all Member States and beyond, located not only in capital cities but also in more remote European regions. Each alliance is composed on average of seven higher education institutions. While some alliances are comprehensive and cover all disciplines, others are for example focusing on sustainable development, health and well-being, digitalisation and artificial intelligence, art, engineering or space.

In total, a budget of up to €287 million is available for these 41 European Universities. Each alliance receives up to €5 million from the Erasmus+ programme and up to €2 million from the Horizon 2020 programme for three years to start implementing their plans and pave the way for other higher education institutions across the EU to follow. Funding from both programmes is an important step in strengthening the interactions between the European Education Area and the European Research Area. The progress of each alliance is closely monitored.

Under the next long-term EU budget for 2021-2027, the Commission proposed to roll out European Universities under the Erasmus programme, in synergy with Horizon Europe and other EU instruments.

Practical Aspects of WTO Litigation by GOLDMAN

Find out more: https://lrus.wolterskluwer.com/store/product/practical-aspects-of-wto-litigation/

Practical Aspects of WTO Litigation is a complete, real-life account of World Trade Organization’s (WTO’s) dispute settlement procedures. This book explains and identifies the practices that are normally followed by disputing parties when using the WTO’s dispute settlement understanding (DSU) entered into force in 1995. Since then, it has spawned an extensive body of jurisprudence, making it a highly complex system to navigate. This book is the first in-depth practical guide to resolving a dispute at the WTO, edited by an international lawyer, who has hands-on experience in WTO litigation. Contributors identify the best practices and suggest potential areas for improvement of the dispute settlement mechanism from their respective points of view.

What’s in this book:
Contributors explain, in a detailed manner, the numerous procedural steps and practices developed over the past twenty-five years, on: 

  • preparing for WTO litigation;
  • recognizing the importance of WTO consultations;
  • presenting a case before a panel;
  • panel requests and panel’s terms of reference;
  • the role and assistance of the WTO Secretariat;
  • the panel process;
  • rules of evidence;
  • confidentiality and transparency;
  • additional working procedures for the treatment of confidential information;
  • legal remedies to redeem a violation;
  • general considerations for appeal;
  • determining the reasonable period of time for compliance;
  • sequencing;
  • retaliation proceedings; and 
  • use of non-WTO international law.

Contributors of individual chapters include government officials responsible for WTO dispute settlement from developing and developed countries, WTO Secretariat officials, a former member of the Appellate Body, academics specializing in international trade and related fields, and lawyers from major law firms specializing in WTO law.

How this will help you:
By confidently approaching cases and enhancing the understanding of the functioning of WTO dispute settlement mechanism with useful insights from experienced practitioners, this book constitutes an expert assessment of a cornerstone of the rules-based multilateral trading system and will prove to be of enormous value to all stakeholders in international trade. Lawyers and advisors working on WTO law and stakeholders from the private sector, civil society and academia, interested in WTO litigation, will find in one source a deeply informed description of existing dispute resolution practices clarifying the scope of many procedural rules.
