EUROPE DIVIDED: INTEGRATION, DEMOCRATISATION AND RUSSIAN AUTHORITARIANISM
Credit points: 15
This course examines the reshaping of European politics during the quarter century between Mikhail Gorbachev's appeal for a 'common European home' in 1989 and the outbreak of conflict in Ukraine in 2014. It seeks to illuminate the successes and failures of European integration and to provoke debate about the origins and significance of the emerging conflict between the EU and Putin's Russia. In particular, it poses questions about the EU's contribution to regional democratisation, the politics of energy, NATO expansion, and the nature of the Putin regime.
