EVER, the alumni association of the Europa-Institut, has always offered different kinds of lectures. This tradition will also be continued during Corona times - only now online. The first lecture on "Putting the Axe to the Root of European Democracy and the Rule of Law" was by Prof. Dr. Thomas Giegerich, director of the Europa-Institut and took place on 18 June 2020. It dealt with the latest ruling by the German Federal Constitutional Court, which declares the ECB's decisions on the public sector purchase programme to be contrary to its powers.
