Credit points: 15

Subject outline

European integration has been hailed as 'the most ambitious and most successful example of peaceful international cooperation in world history'. In this subject students are introduced to this process and its result, the European Union, through different disciplinary lenses. For example, the common European currency, and the project of a Europe without boundaries are addressed not just in terms of history, economics and law but also in relation to their sociological implications for European identity and for member-states' sovereignty. We will study EU's global ambitions from an International Relations perspective and contemplate its future in the light of present crises.
