Sustainability in the EU Company and Financial Law
About the Course
As the transition to a more sustainable economic system is going through a wave of financial and corporate reforms – especially in the EU – there is a strong need for academic institutions to integrate law & economics master students and postgraduates’ educational programs with basic notions on sustainable development and sustainable finance, as well as with in-depth analyses of current trends challenges concerning the implementation of new practices and solutions.
The course, developed by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on EU Sustainable Finance and Law (EUSFIL) aims to provide participants with all basic notions and instruments to understand and discuss current development and trends in the integration of sustainability in the EU company and financial law, while providing several opportunities to dive deeper. As the frameworks are still evolving and include aspects from different legal and economic fields (European Law, Company Law, Banking Law, Financial Markets Regulation etc.), the course will contribute at stimulating the audience to discuss the most challenging issues concerning such a framework from different points of view. Moreover, the course will be one of the first in the EU explicitly targeting the sustainable finance regulatory framework.
