The Jean Monnet Chair conducts research on sustainable development through law at European and global level. The aim is to assess EU law and policy in the light of sustainable development, to address the accompanying questions as to legitimacy, participation and fundamental rights, and to analyse the interplay between the EU’s internal and external action and multilevel sustainability governance. By conducting research projects such as monographic books or a research handbook, the Chair contributes to existing research and discussions in European studies and international law.
