The School of Law of UCLan Cyprus is pleased to announce, for the second year,an LLM module on EU Constitutional Law and Governance in populist times. This is an exciting and timely module as it investigates one of the primary threats to European stability, democracy, and the rule of law, namely the rise of populist parties across the EU. As such, it is an incredible opportunity for participants from all disciplines.
Delving into extreme phenomena, this module:
> Portrays the constitutional structure of the EU against which these threats rise
> Analyses how populism proliferates at the local, national, and regional level
> Explores ways in which the rise of populism deteriorates the rule of law and undermines democratic government
> Evaluates the mechanisms available to the EU to stymie the growth of right-wing populism and the ways in which those avenues can or might be pursued
