3rd Summer Academy on Global Food Law & Policy
|Event Date/Time: Jul 25, 2011||End Date/Time: Jul 29, 2011|
|Registration Date: May 01, 2011|
By means of lectures, presentations, discussion groups, and a moot court participants will not only receive first hand information but also have the opportunity to thoroughly discuss the topics and exchange their views with our distinguished faculty â€“ without time restrictions and the possibility for individual meetings.
The Summer Academy has an academic programme stretching over a period of five days, with the option to arrive the previous weekend. Each day a morning and an afternoon session are scheduled offering ample time for informal exchange and discussions over lunch and coffee.
During the sessions a lecturer introduces a topic theoretically, before turning to the empirical applications. There is always sufficient time for Q&As and the lecturers may decide to change this structure if appropriate. Depending on the lecturerâ€™s availability, individual meetings may be scheduled between the formal teaching sessions.
Alongside the academic sessions social activities are planned on a voluntary basis.
During our five-day programme the following topics are on the agenda:
â€¢ The emergence of global food governance
â€¢ The general principles and requirements of EU food law
â€¢ The US Food Safety Modernization Act and its implications to transnational governance of the safety of the global food supply
â€¢ Update from EFSA: Health claims, novel food, and independence of scientific advise
â€¢ The past, present and future of the WTO Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS Agreement)
â€¢ The challenge of regulatory compliance with national and transnational food & beverages regimes - A voice from the industry Codex Alimentarius: Waste of time or food deliberate democracy? An insider's view
â€¢ Moot court
