Two new volumes in the Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law series have been published in 2021.

Reframing Human Rights in a Turbulent Era by Gráinne de Búrca is based on the General Course lectures given during the 2017 Academy summer course on Human Rights Law.

The book presents an experimentalist account of international human rights law and practice and argues that the human rights movement remains powerful and appealing, with widespread traction in many parts of the globe. Three case studies illuminate the importance and vibrancy of the movement around the world: gender rights in Pakistan, rights of persons with disabilities in Argentina, and children's rights and reproductive rights in Ireland.

Contemporary Challenges to EU Legality, edited by Claire Kilpatrick & Joanne Scott, is based on the Specialized Courses during the 2018 Academy summer course on The Law of the European Union. 

The book focuses on contemporary challenges to EU legality, including actions or activities that cast doubt on, or sit uncomfortably with, the premises, principles, and norms that underpin the EU's legal order as proclaimed by the Treaties and the authoritative judgments of the European Court.
