Dr. Cascone, Adriatic and Western Balkans Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Italy) and Member of the EUVALWEB Team Chair met with the students of the Chair’s Course and held a seminar illustrating the Balkan enlargement process up to the present day and the role of the Italian State in this process.

Dr. Cascone’s participation aroused great interest among the students, who asked a series of questions. This made the difficulties of the Balkan countries clearer and promoted public awareness, which is the main goal of the Jean Monnet EUVALWEB Chair. The event was also attended by Albanian students and Prof. Erjon Hitaj, Lecturer of International Law, Head of Department of Law, University ‘Ismail Qemali’ of Vlöre (Albania) and Member of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory, who took part in the public discussion.

On 15 December 2022, the University of Oradea (Romania) hosted an International online Conference of Bachelor, Master and PhD Students in Law entitled “Rights and Freedoms to Be Protected in Post-Modern Society“, which involved as co-organizers together with the Department of Legal Sciences, University of Salerno, several other Universities, that is: Faculty of Law, University of Debrecen (Hungary); Faculty of Law, University of Miskolc (Hungary); Faculty of Law, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (Ukraine); Department of Law, University of Palermo (Italy); Faculty of Law and Politics, University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France); Institute of Legal Studies, University of Rzeszow (Poland); Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, University of Szeged (Hungary).

EUVALWEB participated in the person of its Chair Holder, Professor Teresa Russo, as a member of the Scientific Committee and as one of the moderators of the event. In addition, EUVALWEB tutors were selected to participate in the conference as speakers.

Respectively, PhD student Stefano Busillo took part in Session I “Human Rights in the Context of War Menace”, with his presentation “Protecting the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict: A Look at the Principles of the ILC Draft” and PhD student Emanuele Vannata participated in Session III “Human Rights and New Technologies. Opportunity or Threat?”, with his presentation “Digital Authoritarianism, Freedom of Expression and Mass Surveillance in the Digital Age. The Case of Iran‘.

Thanks to the coordination of Prof. Russo and the support of the two tutors, the work of Elisabetta Lambiase, a recent graduate from the Department of Legal Sciences at the University of Salerno, was also selected for the Call, discussing in Session III a presentation entitled “EU Border Control Mechanisms: Protection or Violation of Human Rights?”.

This allows us to broaden the cultural dialogue and provide opportunities for personal and professional training and growth to the youngest.

We would like to thank all our partners of this amazing scientific initiative for the excellent results achieved.



The EUVALWEB Chair Holder, Prof. Teresa Russo, together with tutors Dr. Stefano Busillo and Emanuele Vannata, is more than satisfied with the outcome of the workshop “The EU in Its International Institutional Relationship”, held on 13 December 2022 at the University of Salerno.

The workshop offered both national and Erasmus students of the International Organisation course (DSG UNISA) the opportunity to present their work on the relations of their chosen international organisation with the EU.
We believe that the response of the students was amazing, as they showed initiative and resourcefulness to carry out the assigned task correctly!

Thanking the students involved, as well as the audience present yesterday, we plan to organise more workshops in the future! Stay tuned

EUVALWEB presents its first workshop, convened for 13 December 2022 at the University of Salerno, Aula ‘Volterra’, 10:30 AM.

Workshops are a key activity of the EUVALWEB chair, being a critical testing ground for students, as well as a tangible result of the knowledge they have acquired.

Following the training activities carried out as part of the International Organisation course of the Department of Legal Sciences (UNISA) and under the coordination of the EUVALWEB Chair Holder, Prof. Teresa Russo, the students will be called upon, in their scientific investigation, to outline the relationship between some international organisations and bodies and the European Union.

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and as part of the initiative promoted by the Observatory on the European Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, some members of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory took part in the seminar “Being a Woman in Tehran. Interdisciplinary legal perspectives in dialogue with students.”

The topic falls within the fields of investigation of the EUVALWEB Legal Observatory both in the area of promotion and protection of human rights and with reference to issues of socio-economic integration in EU member states.

The speech of the Chair Holder, Prof. Teresa Russo (“The use of the Islamic headscarf and discrimination in the workplace: the risks of the policy of so-called neutrality“) focused on discrimination in the workplace and the difficult balance in the protection of rights, as reflected in the case law of the Court of Justice.
