|The course is divided into three parts:
The first part consists of one unit and contains an interdisciplinary introduction to money and currencies. It provides course participants with the requisite know-how for a comprehensive understanding of the economic and legal principles underlying European and International Monetary Law in terms of the history of money, monetary policy basics and the relationship between money and the law. It explains the basic ideas and principles relevant to this course.
The second part consists of five units and focuses on International Monetary Law. Based on a study of the principle of monetary sovereignty and an overview over the historical background of international monetary law (gold standard, founding of the BIS and the IMF, further reforms of the IMF framework in particular during the 1970ies), the core issues of international monetary relations will be examined. Resulting from the interaction between different monetary systems, those issues are: Convertibility of currencies, free movement of capital and payments, choice/establishment of an exchange rate regime, providing adequate international liquidity and the trilemma of monetary policy. Subsequently, the content and scope of the substantive rules governing the institutional design and working of the IMF will be covered in detail. This includes an analysis of the IMF Articles of Agreement with special focus on institutional design and decision-making within the IMF as well as the substantive legal obligations of Member States.
The third and final part consists of eight units and presents a detailed study of European Monetary Law (European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU)). Following an outline of the history of monetary integration in Europe and the evolution of the European Economic and Monetary Union, the legal post-Lisbon framework of EMU will be examined, in particular the institutional setup and the substantive legal rules that shape EMU. Finally, attention will be given to the incident that shook EMU to its very foundations: The sovereign debt crisis and the measures taken to fight it by the various actors involved. The course will then conclude with an in-depth analysis of the legality and consequences of crisis-related measures.
