History of European Integration


Admission requirements

Admission to the Master EUS.


The course analyses the problems confronting Europe since the process of European cooperation started to take shape at the end of WWI through some of the major treaties and policy choices. It also attempts to explain why supranational, European solutions were deemed necessary to resolve them (and whether they did so). It combines economic history with more traditional international relations history approaches as well as ideas conceived and developed by political scientists.
