European Week of Regions and Cities takes place from 5 to 8 October 2009 at Brussels. The programme and themes are available at http://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/conferences/od2009/index.cfm
Yesterday I read four lectures on fundamentals of law to the Political Governance students of the Tallinn University at Rakvere. The lectures took place in a cosy lecture room at the local university building. I had the best people to work with and probably the best possible technique available for conducting the lectures. In such situations one just should try to meet the also probably high expectations.
Since this was my first meeting with these students, I thought that mostly I was responsible for giving the information this time.
In the end of the day, I gave the students some assignments for the next time. Since the students now also know what the lectures are about and have an overview of the basic problems and literature, we hopefully could create more discussion during our next meeting.
In Ireland, the voters have approved the Lisbon Treaty, the entry into force of which treaty now depends on the Czech and Poland Republics.
