I am writing to invite your students to participate in the upcoming Regional Organizations courses being offered this summer by the Program on International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy (PIOLD) at the American University Washington College of Law. The PIOLD program combines legal, diplomatic, and social scientific approaches to the study of multilateralism to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of international organization functions.
The course on European Union Law, Policy and Diplomacy will feature cutting edge law and policy reforms with a focus on transatlantic relations, financial institutions and human rights law. This class will be taught by Professors Fernanda Nicola and Michelle Egan (American University WCL and SIS) in conjunction with Dr. Gisella Gori, senior political advisor at the EU Delegation, Valerie Rouxel-Laxton, Head of Economic and Financial Affairs at the Delegation of the European Union to the United States of American, and Denis Chaibi, member of the Cabinet of Ms. Kristalina Georgieva, Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid & Crisis Response at the European Commission.
