In the course ‘Market governance in the 21th century’, students acquire knowledge about and gain insight into the regulation and governance of markets by EU governments. The continuous leitmotiv of this course is: under what regulatory conditions can markets help in coping with the challenges of the 21th century?
The following themes are central to this course: (1) the foundations of market regulation and governance in light of regulatory theories; (2) the challenges of pursuing public interest objectives, such as consumer welfare, access to public services, sustainability and solidarity, though market governance; (3) the application and analysis of market governance and public interest objectives in light of EU competition law, EU state aid law and EU public procurement law.
Students gain insight into the concept of market governance by EU governments by independently studying literature, following lectures and tutorials given by experts in the field, and by making a written exam that tests their knowledge on this subject and ability to apply it.
