Politics of the EU


Planned for academic year 2012-2013; subject to change


This course familiarises students with theoretical approaches often used to study European integration, including neo-functionalism, liberal intergovernmentalism and multi-level governance. It provides an overview of European Union (EU) institutions and patterns of European integration in various policy areas. We notably focus on the role of the European Council, the European Commission, the Council of the EU and the European Parliament and on economic and monetary integration.
