Content
The European Union is Iceland’s largest trading partner and the EU’s influence on Iceland in other areas is extensive. Iceland is linked to the EU primarily through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). The course will begin with a discussion of the origin and history of the EU and go on to address its legal system, i.e. European Law, in a narrow sense. The discussion will focus on the institutional framework of the European Union and its legislative and decision-making processes. The basic aspects of the legal system, such as direct effect and primacy of EU Law, will be addressed, as well as the interplay between the domestic legal order of the member states and EU Law in general. The European Court of Justice and the European Court of First Instance and their interaction with the judicial systems of the member states will be discussed separately. The course will then turn to the basic principles of the Single Market, i.e. the free movement of goods, services, people and capital and the right of establishment. Finally, the course will examine the EEA Agreement, its institutional framework, decision-making process and material scope, particularly the relationship between the EEA Agreement and the Icelandic legal order.
