Scientists from TTÜ Department of Law investigate the impact of the EU citizens' rights on the political environment in the digital era
TTÜ Department of Law won the competition for provision of research services to the European Commission in the field of the rights of EU citizens.
The consortium is led by the European Centre for Political Science and, besides TTÜ Department of Law, also Maastricht University and European University Institute are involved in the research. The total cost of the project is half a million euros.
According to the head of TTÜ Department of Law Professor Tanel Kerikmäe, citizenship of the European Union is an initiative that should enhance our European identity. “The goal of the project is to study the rights deriving from EU citizenship and the impact thereof on the political and legal environment. In particular, it will be interesting to analyse, which legal challenges are facing multilevel Europe in the digital era.”
