Another great response from the audience!

We are more than happy with the outcome of last Tuesday’s seminar, jointly organized by the JM Chair EUVALWEB and the JM Modules EU-DRAW and DECDP.

Offering insights and critics on the relationship between judicial cooperation, IAs and cybersecurity with the human rights, as a sensitive topic, was not an easy task, but the distinguished speakers were able to deliver it in a compelling and intriguing way. For that, we thank them as much as the students who stepped up to ask their questions during the open debate!

Thank you again!

We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the Law Clinic last Friday, 17 November 2023, on the practical topic of EU Agencies.

In particular, the Clinic not only tried to frame these agencies, but also illustrated some of the main issues that have characterised them over the years.

The Jean Monnet Chair EUVALWEB delegation to Serbia, present in Belgrade from 13 to 16 November 2023, thanks every institution involved for the warm reception and hospitality. Indeed, it was a fruitful and stimulating journey where the Chair conducted scientific activities, as well as a series of meetings to seal partnership agreements with historical institutes located in the Serbian capital as well as to consolidate the existing ones.

In particular, in the morning of 13 November, the delegation was guests at the Institute of Sociological and Criminological Research of Belgrade in order to seal a partnership agreement with the host institution as well as to plan further scientific initiatives in Spring 2024 in the premises of the Institute. Additionally, the Chair Holder, Prof. Teresa Russo, later held a lecture on the “International and European Cooperation in Criminal Justice” in presence of students, academics and practitioners.

The next day, in the morning of 14 November, the delegation was earnestly greeted at the Institute of Comparative Law of Belgrade to exchange the precious partnership agreement already concluded. The Chair also secured the participation of the ICL to the organisation and management of the further scientific initiatives to be held in Belgrade. For their outstanding support and the warmest welcome given during these days, the Chair Holder gives a huge shout-out to Prof. Jelena Kostić as well as the representatives of the Institute!

In the afternoon, the University of Criminal Investigation and Police Studies, which has been a partner of EUVALWEB since 2021, received the Chair’s delegation in order to define an even better framework within the partnership and also to join the other institutions in setting up the scientific initiatives of Spring 2024. EUVALWEB feels deeply grateful towards Prof. Ivana Bodrožić for the willingness to have us there! (UCIPS News)

Conclusively, in the evening of the 14 November, the Chair was present at the gala convened at the Italian Embassy where the occasion made possible to get acquainted with other stakeholders and practitioners to be involved in the Chair’s activity in the upcoming scientific initiatives.

With the guided tour of the city of Salerno and the meeting with the Erasmus Office, we closed our Late-July Agenda on Planning Euvalweb Educational, Didactic and Scientific Activities on What Role for Science, Technology and Innovation in Promoting EU Studies?, which in the framework of the activities of the Jean Monnet EUVALWEB Chair, and specifically of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory, hosted Professors Alba Gërdeci, Eglantina Farruku, Endri Papajorgji and Gelanda Shkurtaj from the Department of Law of the EPOKA University of Tirana, Albania.
These meetings were also fruitful in terms of results with interesting proposals for the continuation of teaching and scientific cooperation activities between the University of Salerno and EPOKA University of Tirana.
Prof. Teresa Russo expresses her utmost satisfaction and thanks for the hosted colleagues!

The day of 19 July was entirely dedicated to an in-depth study of European Union law. In particular, in the morning round table, UNISA DSG Professors discussed with Albanian Professors from the Department of Law of EPOKA University of Tirana the interdisciplinary aspects of EU law, exploring its traces in ancient organisational models and looking at the imminent and future perspectives resulting from the ecological, digital, and energy transition process currently taking place at international and European level.
In the debate, interesting lines of research emerged that will be further explored in the next editions of the Jean Monnet Chair EUVALWEB and within the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory.

In the afternoon, the meeting with Italian and Albanian students allowed us to hear their views on the accession of the Western Balkans in general, and Albania in particular, to the European Union. Their desire to feel European emerged strongly from their reflections, promoting one of the main goals of the Jean Monnet EUVALWEB Chair: AWARENESS!

Prof. Teresa Russo, as Chair Holder of the Euvalweb Jean Monnet Chair, expresses her heartfelt thanks to all the professors and students who took part, as well as her firm academic and scientific commitment to bring the peoples of the Western Balkans into the ‘mindset’ of the European Union.

Prof. Teresa Russo, as the Chair Holder of the EUVALWEB Jean Monnet Chair, expresses her warmest appreciation for the work and dissertation discussion of the two Albanian students, Andrea Kokomeci and Egla Leci.

Their dissertations, conducted within the framework of the Jean Monnet Chair EUVALWEB and the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory, concerned the adaptation of the Albanian legal system to the EU acquis. In particular, Egla Leci’s thesis dealt with “The Right to Privacy in Albania. Its compliance with the EU GDPR and Current Challenges”, while Andrea Kokomeci’s thesis dealt with “The impact of EU commercial Law on the Economic Transformation of Albania: A Legal Analysis of the Business Environment and the Establishment of Legal Entities”.

This is an important milestone that closes the course of study of the two Albanian students with top marks, after a significant 6-month training activity within the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory and the Jean Monnet Chair EUVALWEB.

Prof. Teresa Russo would like to thank the degree examination committee composed of Albanian Professors Alba Gërdeci, Eglantina Farruku, Endri Papajorgji, Gelanda Shkurtaj of EPOKA University of Tirana (Albania) and Prof. Rossana Palladino, DSG, UNISA.

A special thanks goes to Prof. Heliona Miço for her supervision and elaboration activity for the thesis of Egla Leci.

Also our thanks goes the EUVALWEB Tutors, Dr. Stefano Busillo and Emanuele Vannata for supporting the students in their research activities necessary for the writing of their thesis.

We are really happy to have contributed to the training of young Albanians and future citizens of the EU family. Many congratulations!!!
