The East Dialogues Jean Monnet Module combines legal studies and political science to investigate the legal traditions of Eastern Europe.
The Module aims at increasing the awareness of the legal and political dynamics related to Eastern Europe and contributing to EU priority domains and policies as the promotion of rule of law and free and fair trade.
The project particularly investigates the legal and political traditions of the countries of the EU Eastern Partnership: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The scientific literature highlighted how these countries, far from fully realising the expected democratic transition turned into a complex variety of legal-political systems.
Thus, the Module aims to study this complex assortment of legal-political systems and provide students of the next generation with the required analytical background. From the EU perspective, trade is not only an economic process but also a means to promote values. Therefore, the improvement and protection of civil rights is a crucial component of the EU trade policy towards its East Neighbors.
The Module is developed in cooperation with the Faculty Law of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy - Національний університет «Києво-Могилянська академія» (NUKMA).

The Reshaping Education for Tomorrow's European Lawyers (RETEL) Module's objective is to promote innovation in educating future lawyers in the European Union. The program aims at training future professionals and experts on the existing challenges posed by the rise of technology to the European legal profession. Simultaneously, RETEL promotes the latest developments in European laws concerning the digital economy and promotes a constructive synergy between academia, policy-makers, and citizens. The Module, which covers three years, is structured around five activities, which will be its principal outputs:
- a participatory lab in which students are able to reverse their stakeholder position and become decision-makers on the role that education should play in their university education (first year);
- a newly established course of training tomorrow's European digital jurists (first, second and third year);
- two conferences intended to launch the event and discuss the role of European laws and policies on innovation and education (first, second and third year);
- a series of practical interdisciplinary seminars open to the public (first, second and third year);
- two summer schools for Ph.D. students to present their research agenda in a mixed interdisciplinary environment (second and third year).
Each activity is expected to involve hundreds of recipients and engage a broad audience of users, spanning from students and citizens to policy-makers. Eventually, RETEL aims to lay the foundations for an effective and coherent synergy of the actions already taken at national, regional, and local levels, promoting excellence in teaching. The Module conducts targeted educational and public-awareness campaigns by organizing public lectures, thematic exhibitions, open roundtables, and seminars to endorse the European vision of the future. Finally, the Module promotes the attractiveness of the Union in terms of the high technological level of creative innovation and solutions to a broad section of the public.
