Classic executive power is changing and transforming at all governance levels and under the influence of successive emergencies and crises. We see these changes being normalised in various ways and affecting different legal fields, in particular constitutional and administrative law but also criminal law and migration law and other fields. Do crises change how we view executive power, and how is that power exercised in the EU? Does it simply expand in times of crisis, or does the kind of power exercised also change? At the same time, the roles of public actors such as law enforcement and migration authorities are transforming due to the interplay of different drivers. These drivers include the operationalisation of AI across different governance levels, the ’delegation’ in important ways of concrete (public) tasks to private actors or at least the (mandatory) sharing of private information then used in governing. Such ‘administrativization’ asks private companies to balance fundamental (digital) rights and abide by procedures which open their internal private bureaucracies to users in ways that appear similar to public administrations. How do we balance the need for effective and decisive action in the public interest with procedural safeguards?

The aim of the seminar is twofold: to pinpoint and discuss important ways in which executive power in Europe is changing in law and in practice, highlighting possible gaps in accountability and judicial protection. In addition each of the teachers will reflect on the methodological challenges they have faced in their own research on changing executive power and ways of overcoming them.
First, Second & Third Term: registration from 19 to 26 September.
