The 17th session of the Jean Monnet Seminar will focus on the topic “The Rule of Law in the EU and the USA”. Paper proposals may cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to:

· the practical use of the ‘rule of law’,
· the role of different institutions and the instruments for upholding the rule of law,
· the role of courts, especially the Court of Justice of the European Union, in safeguarding the rule law,
· the rule of law as applied to courts, and
