Excursion to Strasbourg, Luxembourg and Brussels
After submission of their master theses, the current master students went on an excursion from 15 to 20 June 2014 to gain insights into the work of the European institutions.
In Strasbourg the students visited the European Court for Human Rights and met with Angelika Nussberger, the judge elected on behalf of Germany. Next the students went to Luxembourg and attended an oral hearing at the General Court (Case T-176/12, Bank Tejarat v. Council) and met with members of the staff of the Court of Justice of the European Union. The last leg of the excursion led the students to Brussels where they were informed on current developments in European affairs, especially the upcoming actions as regards Ukraine, during their visits to the European Commission, the Council of the European Union and the Hanse-Office.
