The Europa-Institut of Saarland University is the leading partner of the SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence in European and International Law, together with the law faculties of the Universities of Belgrade (Serbia), Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Skopje (North Macedonia), Tirana (Albania) and Zagreb (Croatia), and the South East European Law School Network. The project is supported and sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) as well as the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, and aims to promote the outstanding capabilities in research and teaching in the field of European and International Law.
The SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence in European and International Law sets to improve not only the cooperation between Germany and the South East European countries but also the cross-border regional and local cooperation in the areas of teaching and research as well as in the development of common structures and strategies. The Cluster of Excellence seeks to explore new avenues in the transfer of knowledge, as we firmly believe that sharing expertise and experiences will strengthen the profile of each partner and the network as a whole. To this end, the Cluster implements various measures and activities aspiring to achieve the set goals: eLearning modules, a model curriculum, a graduate school, a number of research projects, summer schools, library cooperation and various publications.
This collection of papers is intended to serve as a forum for academic staff and young academics of the partner faculties in the SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence to publish their research results on relevant questions in European and International Law. In addition to the traditional areas of law, specific areas of interest include: the integration of SEE countries in the European Union, issues of legal reform and implementation of the acquis, best practices in legal reform, and approximation of legislation in the region of South Eastern Europe and the EU. The series is published on a yearly basis and is peer-reviewed by the Editorial Board.
