The course will deal with the academic discipline of “international administrative law” (droit administratif international, diritto amministrativo internazionale, Internationales Verwaltungsrecht) from two different perspectives.
Firstly, it will analyse how the administrative law is influenced by the activities of specific international organisations (international administrative unions). Attention will be paid both to the very classical unions (e.g. various river commissions, Universal Post Union, International Telecommunications Union etc.) and to very modern features, as is the SWIFT, Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, ISO etc. Secondly, it will deal with the question of how the national administrative law regulates foreign elements (e.g. recognition of foreign administrative decisions, delivery of domestic administrative decision abroad etc.). At least, but not at last, our Italian guest, Prof. Ferrara from the University of Naples (»Federico II«) will deliver a speech on the concept of the “Global Administrative Law” (i.e. administrative law without a State). The course is opened for both Czech and Erasmus students.
