The 2022 Academy of European Law summer course on The Law of the European Union focused on the legitimacy of EU environmental governance. The workshop brings together EUI researchers and the five prominent lecturers who taught the specialized courses during the course. The lecturers will be preparing chapters for an edited volume on this topic (to be included in the Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law series, published by OUP) and their draft chapters will be discussed during the workshop. 

EUI researchers will be given an opportunity to act as discussants, thus enhancing their skills in critical and constructive engagement with texts and public speaking. 

Topics to be explored in the volume include: the instruments of EU environmental  governance; the role of environmental principles; the system of remedies in EU law, with a focus on environmental law; fundamental rights in environmental litigation; scientific complexity before courts in environmental litigation.
