The European Public Law Organization was conceived of in 2004, and was officially founded in 2007. The organization’s headquarters are located in Athens, Greece, and therefore the organization does a lot of work in both the middle east and in the mediterranean region. It is recognized as both an international legal personality and as a Greek National Institution, because of it’s work in The Hellenic Republic. The Organization has conducted extensive research in the area of public law and participates in international bodies and consulting endeavors. The Organization’s mission and work is relevant to any student currently studying International Affairs, because it deals with the promotion of European legal values. The idea of a set of values and laws which are applicable to an entire continent, not just a single nation, ties into the growth of globalization over the last century. International Affairs contends with the relationships and agreements between states and other sorts of international bodies. An understanding of European Judicial Values is of course, very important in a world where the European Union dominates so much of the economic and policy decisions being made in the European Continent, and where the United Nations seeks to bring more cohesion to the set of principles by which international activity is conducted. While state governments certainly play an enormous role in influencing the course of the global community, Organizations like the EPLO now have their own part to play. The EPLO is able to develop educational programing, intervene in subjective legal matters and provide expertise more rapidly and more effectively than a government can in many cases. For example, the EPLO’s work in Serbia, strengthening the country’s national assembly, demonstrates the role of an NGO in cases that require acute attention and specific expertise. An organization like the EPLO needs employees who are able to provide expertise through an understanding of global structures and crises, as well as legal terminology and history. A developed analysis of the dilemmas facing the European Community today would be useful, as well as an understanding of the historical and cultural contexts that inform public law across Europe. In turn, the organization would provide employees with an opportunity to see how development and education from an NGO change the way global systems operate. The EPLO’s work on specific cases in places like Afghanistan would provide employees with new perspectives that only real life experience can provide. There is only so much you can learn in a classroom setting and since the world is changing everyday, in positive and negative ways, the only way to keep up is to be involved in projects like the ones carried out by the EPLO.
