Dear students,

For weeks 02 (today) & 03 (18.03.), presentation files prepared by me about introductions to the course (history of European integration and conceptual approaches to EU studies, respectively) will be made available in Moodle. For any related questions, feel free to contact me anytime via email: lola.raich@univie.ac.at

All classes will take place over Moodle!

1.) The response to the readings assignment will proceed as explained during 1st class:
~250 words postings from individual students under the respective links for each week (Deadline on Tuesdays 8pm).

2.) The group presentations:
Those who present will make their presentation file available in Moodle, as explained during 1st class.
Presentation files must be written in full sentences rather than in a bullet point format.
If applicable, on the thread created by the presenters, questions to the presenters may be placed in particular but not exclusively about the additional/further readings.

3.) The classroom discussions for all the following weeks will proceed online under the following format:
I have posted as discussion threads ~3-4 questions and/or statements for further discussion.
Students will have one week time to engage and reply to one or all the issues raised by me.
They are encouraged to engage with each-others comments.

If further changes become necessary, you will be informed accordingly.

Stay safe and healthy, LR

Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Summary of the course contents:
The policies of the European Union (EU) profoundly affect the lives of people in Europe and around the world. The most commonly known policies to do that are the creation of a single market (~500 million consumers, one of the largest in the world), as well as the creation of the Euro (despite its young age, a powerful international currency). In addition to these economic achievements, the EU has become a serious actor in other areas such as environmental protection, international trade, development aid, international security, etc.
This course will be divided into three parts: the first one will focus on internal policies such as the single market, Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), EU’s social dimension, etc.; the second part will concentrate on EU’s external dimension with policies such as international trade, enlargement, the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), environmental protection, etc.; in the third part students will get acquainted with issues that currently dominate the discourse about EU studies such as public opinion, democratic deficit and legitimacy of the EU.
Completion of the seminar will enable students to have a deeper understanding of selected EU policies and their impact within the EU and at the global level as well as understanding on issues dominating the discourse on the EU.

Objective of the course:
The aim of the course is twofold: a) to enable students gain in-depth understanding of relevant EU policies and select issues dominating the discourse on the EU; b) advance students' ability to produce spoken and written analyses in accordance with good academic practices.

Learning outcomes:
• Detailed understanding about relevant EU policies and select issues currently dominating the discourse on EU studies.
• Class is designed to develop students’ analytical/critical thinking and presentation techniques. Research work and essay writing target the improvement of students’ research and academic writing skills. Hence, students will learn how to:
o Independently produce written analyses in accordance with good academic practices,
o Raise good analytical questions relevant to topics provided,
o Plan and present own research, and
o Critically analyse and think conceptually about selected EU policies by using reasoned/well-informed arguments.
