Learn about the fundamental freedoms and laws that govern cross-border transportation in the European Union. This course is part of an Erasmus+ project and funded by the European Commission.
In this MOOC you will learn about the rules and application of the current legal framework of cross-border EU road transportation. You will analyse the most relevant case law of the European Court of Justice (CJEU) and explore the impact on the rights of international road transport workers.
At the end of the course you will be able to describe the basics of the process of European integration, in the light of the affirmation of the four fundamental freedoms of the EU, the posting of workers, social security coordination and social dialogue.
The course will explore fundamental freedoms like free movement of workers, freedom to provide services and freedom of establishment embodied in the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). In this course you will also learn about the core principles of non-discrimination and the prohibition of imposing obstacles to the freedoms protected by the TFEU.
