Jean Monnet Network on enforcement of EU law (EULEN)


Online Lectures’ Series

We will create a joint online lecture series on the recent developments and (new) challenges in EU law enforcement. The online lectures will shine light on the pertinent issues in the three developments that EULEN is focusing on: decentralised, transnational and centralised enforcement.

Summer School

We will organize a Summer School ‘Effective enforcement in Europe’ in January 2022. This Summer School will present the latest insights in effective regulatory enforcement and organize learning for senior enforcement professionals from countries across Europe, to build networks and foster exchange. Furthermore, it will support selected advanced students in developing their professional specialization.

The Summer School will disseminate knowledge and good practices for decentralized and private enforcement; transnational enforcement; and regulatory strategies of EU authorities. The course will present scholarship from a range of disciplines including law, governance, criminology, and behavioral studies. The course aims to bring participants up to speed with the state of the art in regulatory scholarship with regard to the three above-mentioned topics and to offer concrete suggestions and tools for knowledge implementation, by offering knowledge in practice-oriented formats. This Summer School will be case-based, with group discussions and peer-to-peer exchanges.

The main lecturers and coordinators of the Summer School will be dr. Florentin Blanc (World Bank), prof. Judith van Erp (Utrecht University), and dr. Giuseppa Ottimofiore (World Bank). They are among the most prominent scholars on regulatory enforcement and regulatory delivery in Europe and experts in translating academic knowledge to practice. They have extensive experience with consultancy and teaching regulatory professionals about effective enforcement strategies.
