About Us

The proposed Chair “European Union Law in the Global Context” is meant to improve, renew the teaching and research of EU Law at the University of Macau in a way that reflects the contemporary situation of the EU and its Law in the global context.

In our view, recent shifts in the EU and the world necessarily affect the way EU Law should be taught: substantively and methodologically, this seems to call for a focus on issues of burning global relevance and for a comparison of solutions that may foster understanding. This is especially the case in Macau, where EU law is taught to an audience mainly composed by Students stemming from Mainland China and Portuguese-Speaking countries, who, experience demonstrates, eventually become leaders in their jurisdictions and areas of activity.

The core objectives of the Chair are: to present renewed, advanced, and update, socially-relevant knowledge of excellence on EU Law with a focus on burning issues of global relevance, in a systematic comparative approach; to foster corresponding new research avenues; to ensure wide dissemination of the aforementioned; to raise or recover the interest of Students in the EU and its Law in a changing international context; to provide EU Law skills to Students in a wider variety of settings (IR, political science, business, etc.); to help build networks between EU studies’ experts in the region and beyond; to maintain vibrant communication with the society; to ensure the visibility of the EU and EU studies .

The expected outcomes of the Chair are: EU Law featuring in the curricula of different entities at all levels of Higher Education; development of lifelong learning in EU Law; excellence and innovation in teaching, research, reflection in EU Law; establishment of academic networks facilitating the progress of academic expertise in EU law, also regionally; vibrant dialogue with the society. They shall be evidenced by publications, website, outreach activities and subject to quality control.
