In pursuit of more efficient energy prices, increased security of supply and more sustainable power production, the EU has endeavoured for decades to create a pan-European market for the free trade of electricity across borders. However, connections between the national energy markets are still insufficient to make this vision of an ‘Energy Union’ a reality.
In his Ph.D. thesis, Julius Rumpf examines how EU law regulates high-voltage electricity infrastructure, particularly cross-border transmission lines (so-called interconnectors), to create a single market for electricity that spans the entire continent and helps achieve the aims of EU energy policy.
In Norway, the parliamentary process has resulted in a broad public debate on what consequences an affiliation with the EU’s energy union and the energy agency ACER may have for Norwegian resource management.
The project aims at establishing and developing joint educational activities and student mobility within European law, Human Rights and International Law between the Law faculties of the Universities of Oslo (Norway) and National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (Ukraine).
Siri Kildahl Venemyr's Phd project focus on what role EU/EEA law plays, and how it influences this part of national administrative law.
The European Court of Justice has recognized that access to court is an essential element of a Union based on the Rule of Law. Whether the litigant has standing to make a legal claim in court – locus standi – is critical as to whether he may enforce the law and obtain a remedy. Hilde K. Ellingsen's Ph.D project contains an analysis of how Union law impacts on domestic standing rules.
Stian Øby Johansen's Phd project centers on three case studies of International Organizations wielding direct power over individuals.
We are pleased to announce the 2nd Common Market Law Review Annual Conference which is being held on 20 October in Oslo.
The Centre is interdisciplinary and serves scholars doing research on European Law. We also make studies for Norwegian ministries and provide legal practitioners working with EEA law with relevant information.
