The mission of the department is to provide a deep insight and thorough understanding of the dual nature of European law in the education programs and research activities of the Faculty of International and European Studies. Examining the parallel but densely interconnected public and private dimensions of European law offers a unique set of knowledge and comparative skills even among Hungarian institutions of higher education. This contribution underpins the faculty’s overall effort to offer a complex view of European policies to our students, further enriching their professional knowledge.

Members of the department participate in all relevant education programs of the Faculty in Bachelor (BA /BSc) and Master (MA /MSc) levels in the fields of European integration (history, institutions, legislature and functioning of the European Union, justice and home affairs), the law of European common market, investment policies and investment protection, competition rights, EU consumer and marketing law, consumer protection law, copyright and intellectual property law, European corporate law, etc.

The dual character of the department provides the opportunity for conducting interdisciplinary, comparative research and education, putting great emphasis on legal practice and case studies Centre for Strategic and Defence Studies, Research Centre for Chinese Society and Economics and the role of Hungary within the Alliance.
